:icon_scared: Wellllllllllllllll that’s it then! After much thinking, business planning, meeting with financial advisors and careful preparation I am leaving the safety of my in-house design job at Nu Urban Music ( Nu Urban Design - Portfolio ) to become a fully self employed designer from the beginning of September. I have been working outside of my 9-5 for some time now and feel now is the right time to make that move. I am keeping my original employer on as a client, they were really understanding. Its all very scary but also exciting! I have a bunch of great jobs lined up so the work is there for me, at least for a while. I run two other freelance businesses www.devolutiondesigns.co.uk which is my music and media industry design work and www.typeonecreative.com which I have set up this year, I employ other web designers and developers to help out with the work when needed. Anyone else made that leap? If so how is it going? Im going to miss paid holidays.. but I am really looking forward to being able to fully manage my working schedule… and have a few cheeky lie-ins now and then!
