I don’t know about you but I love reading about other freelancers, best practices for freelancers and anything freelance related because I can not only relate, but learn as much as I can about being a freelance designer – sounds almost cultish. So here is a little list of my top picks of freelance books that I own and feel are a great resources for any freelance designer.
My Brief Beef
It’s been said time and time again in the design industry that Spec Work should be illegal. What is Spec Work? Offering your services/designs/creative abilities for free with little or nothing in return. Back when I was in college — years ago — I was told never to do work for free, never take out the trash before your paid, always work diligently with a contract and make sure there is mutual respect between the client and the designer.
