I’m currently employed working on rebranding companies product brochures (20+ products and each in 50-page brochures) and also interactive and static forms that are too many for me to count! I’m doing all this in InDesign along with other rebranded content such as presentations, conference material etc.
I love doing this kind of thing. As this job will eventually end I had an idea to build a business around using my InDesign skills to offer services to others that may need one-off document development. Another idea was to offer services for others that may be rebranding and need help in converting their existing business collateral to the new brand.
I am very experienced in InDesign with practical experience after a few years ago completing advanced level training with Adobe certified trainers. I also continually do training courses in areas I’m not so familiar with to build my skills even more.
My questions to this forum are:
- do you see a market for these offerings?
- As a graphic designer would you outsource to someone like myself once you have created the branding or do you prefer to do all this yourself? (my question around this is trying to find if graphic designers are a possible source of clients and I could be a help to you)
- Who would you see as a possible client base that needs someone with Indesign skills?
Any thoughts, ideas and discussion you could provide to help identify how I can build a business with Indesign skills would be very much appreciated.
