Just curious to see how many of you out there are full time professionals in the design field, whether it be self employed or at an agency, or in house, or whether you're doing it for a hobby, student etc.
How on Earth do you figure that? So by that reckoning you're not a professional footballer until you've played for 10 years???balders said:So if it's your job then your a professional? I disagree, maybe after 10+ years in an industry then you can call your self a professional.
I'd go for someone who can earn all of their living from solely designing i.e. a non-league footballer earns money from it, but they are merely semi-professional as they're part-time.balders said:A professional is someone who is paid for a skill...simple as that.
Whether it's part time, full time, bit's on the side or your livelihood is irrelevant really.
So an eight year old washes a car for some extra cash pocket money, he's now a professional car washer?
