Course Description

Launching a freelance career in art and design can be intimidating. It’s hard to know where to begin with so many opportunities and challenges to navigate. This workshop offers step-by-step personalized planning tools and resources to help you get started.

In the first session, you’ll assess your product, compute your base hourly rate, and figure out the budget, materials, and space you’ll need to set up your creative business.

In the second session, you’ll work on identifying your target market, and explore the ways in which you can connect with your customers. Topics include networking, personal branding, portfolios, websites, collateral, and marketing plans.

The final week we will look at the nuts and bolts of pricing, proposals, contracts, copyright, bookkeeping and taxes.
