Hi Folks Been here a few days now - nice forums with a nice selection of subjects. I'm located near Gillingham in Kent, UK. Have been doing the design thing for <deep breath> 21 years now, freelance for the last 15 and have been working with the same people off and on for the past 10! However, these days, due to the nature of the fact that all clients these days seem to think of themselves as designers as well, I primarily push myself as more of a quick and efficient artworker. That way, I'm less likely to blow my top and tell the clients to just leave well alone and let me do what they are paying me for! But still finding it EXCEPTIONALLY tough at the moment. Usually based 40 miles away from home in rented office space, but working from home as much as I possibly can at present... Have been looking after a huge client for the last few years but that's starting to slip away a little so I'm spreading my wings a little to do a bit of networking. So now I have to learn how to approach potential customers again! <sigh...> So here I am!
