Only In An Emergency
I’m not 25 years old anymore. I’m 36 and I don’t do freelance design projects anymore, I do projects for myself.
I’ll always give advice to friends and family when they ask for it (I’m not a complete asshole) but if what they need requires more than four hours of my time I kindly refuse to do it.
I’m at the point in my life where I’m doing things for my wife and I, and staying up all night after a day at the office to work on someone’s restaurant menu or website is not what I want to be doing. In 2012 I successfully funded a Kickstarter project which, coincidentally, kickstarted my re-entry into the world of print design and screen printing. That’s the shit I want to be working on when the weekend rolls around. You can see what I’m working on at The Combustion Chamber.
So I approach freelance project requests like The Wolf in Pulp Fiction: Call me if you’re in a pinch and you need to get out of that pinch.
