What software are people using to create preview renderings of collateral suites they design for their online portfolios?
Hey designers, I am being hired to do a project for a school district and they are paying me with a Purchase Order. This is part of my initial deposit and I wanted to know if this is a legit way of paying me? I won't get the money for 30days? And do I have
to worry about them canelling the the purchase order payment if I start sending then sketches or early samples and they do not like what they are seeing? I usually like to get a deposit payment (real money) before I start working on any project. Any issues
I may face with getting payment from a Purchase Orders? Thanks in advance for any feedback!
I wish AIGA would create and sponsor a match.com like website for creative thinkers to form professional partnerships. It's not LinkedIn or the TED site or a blog. Any thoughts?
Do those of you single member firms find that it is more advantageous to have an office space? Do you think it builds credibility and is easier to get clients?
it depends on your working style and clientele you are going to reach. I've had an office for about a year, and sincerely - didn't get even 50% potential of it. A lot of meetings with clients were in their offices or via Facetime/Skype. Now I'm working from
my home office, and one thing I'm missing most is easy collaboration & brainstorm with co-workers, which is now a little bit harder (need to schedule it eariler and so on). If you are working for small, creative and open minded firms, it's OK to optimize your
cost and do without office space.
BUT, if you feel like working for corporate businesses, they expect you have an office space. Even though they will probably not visit you at work (and demand you visit them instead), it gives them a notion you are a trustable business partner. If so, maybe
a virtual office service is good for you? You get then registered address, post & phone forwarding, what makes your business appear more professional for some people...
