 Clients From Hell | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 53:39

Working with great design clients is what makes our job so amazing. Then there are the OTHER ones. Clients who don’t value your work. Clients who give vague feedback, or who will “know it when they see it.” Most of the time, this is all on us as the designer — we haven’t properly communicated […]

 An Ad-ucation in Advertising Your Design Business | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:00:56

Unless you have all the business you can handle, AND you are making the kind of money you deserve, you should probably consider advertising in one way or another.

 The Mobile Optimization Checklist | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 1:03:16

 Charging for Your Value | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 55:35

In the world of graphic design, most people charge one of two ways: based on time or per project. But let’s face it, both are usually based on some type of time-based calculation. The problem with this method is that nobody really benefits from it. Your client is ends up paying for the time you […]
