Published by Self-Counsel Press, 2009.


Whether you've just stepped into the world of graphic design or you're part of an existing venture, this book details everything you need to know to start and run your own successful graphic design business—from understanding the particulars of the field and establishing your niche, to getting clients and actually doing the work. It is a step-by-step guide that unleashes the secret to success: being creative with a business mind-set.

In recent years, advances in technology and the prevalence of the Internet have significantly changed the graphic design business. Photo- and art-sharing websites, social networking sites, and low barriers to setting up websites have heightened the demand for fresh new graphics, and provided numerous opportunities for graphic artists to reach new markets and customers. This book will show you how to capitalize on these opportunities, market your business, find clients, and stay organized.
