    I'm James, a designer based near Manchester. I have a full-time design job, and am slowly trying to build a viable freelance business in (some of) my free time! See you on the threads :)

    Then you have plenty of experience @james81 :) That's great.

    Hope you find a good freelance solution on your spare time so you can earn some good cash. As you might have noticed on some freelance platforms, there is a race to the bottom when it comes to prices. Sometimes it feels like the rock bottom prices is devaluing the whole industry. As a designer you are expected to work almost for free even though you spend a lot of time doing great designs. The expectations are different when it comes to teachers and other workers who provide services. They are not expected to work for "free".

    Best of luck!
