  • Working with Corporations

    Creative Pro just put out an article which really gives good advice for freelancers or small companies working with large Corporations. Clients like this are my mainstay... I certainly see the value of these tips. You might too.

      Yes good article. The thing I struggle with is showing how my work adds value and will make money or business for my client. I get tunnel vision and think that the benefit is what they can pay me. I feel like I want to make as much as possible and then question if I am being greedy. "The value of hiring me is that I get needed money I am desperate for" is not the appropiate answer. How do you show value? I don't have info of how my work made someone money. That is a good suggestion I need to research so that I can show value and benefit. Working with the decision maker is always the best advice with any freelance job.

      Thanks Viki
      I don't make mistakes. I thought I did once but I was wrong.

        Looks nice, but as Kayekaye said, the shadows need some work. Shadows are never an even gray. In the real world, the shadows very close to where the balls meet the surface would be nearly black and fade...

        I'll suggest soaking up everything you're told -- even when it's with a grain of salt. At this point your professors know more than you, and there'll be plenty of time a ways down the road (when you've...

        Reply to Typesetting. Can you spot my obsession?

        I don't think today's typesetting is comparable to Gutenberg's work. It's a bit like comparing the Wright brothers to contemporary aviation engineers. Both Gutenberg and the Wright brothers made huge,...

        If this is for you as a designer its is way too busy. Do some research and design a much more streamlined layout based on a grid.
