Be the expert, not another order taker.
Most designers do not ask these questions. You’ll stand out, get more respect, and your expertise will be valued more, which means you can charge more.
I’ve been there, and I can help.
Hi. I’m Colleen Gratzer. I wrote this guide to share some of my insights from 20+ years as a successful graphic designer, with 15 of those having my own business, Gratzer Graphics LLC.
I have seen it all and know the ins and outs of working for yourself—from 0 to quit-your-job level income.
I started Creative Boost and the Design Domination podcast to help designers with their technical skills, confidence, clients, business savvy and more—because I’ve been there!
