A couple days ago my boyfriend’s (Brent) mom asked me if I could design a business card for her sister (I assume it’s her sister, she called her Aunt Lisa). I designed it in two days. It was nothing fancy. But I had fun doing it.
Of course, being how I am, I didn’t charge her for it. Brent is constantly nagging at me to start charging people for the designs I make for them. I think he has a point.
One of my new year’s resolutions this year was to start freelancing and trying to make money on the side. Perhaps it’s time to give that a shot.
The business card I designed is not my absolute best but Aunt Lisa liked it and that’s all that mattered. But now I have to get more serious with my designs if I want people to trust me with their designs.
Next project: branding myself. Branding is one of my favorite things to do so this one will be fun. I’ll even make and Online Portfolio page on my blog to display my work.
And from now on I won’t be doing anymore free designs for people. Hopefully this’ll be good for me.
