To go with my post, 14 Tips for Beginning Freelance Illustrators, I’m giving away a copy of Creative, Inc. The Ultimate Guide to Running a Successful Freelance Business by Meg Mateo Ilasco and Joy Deangdeelert Cho of Oh Joy!
Now, Creative, Inc. is not just geared to illustrators, but offers advice for all types of creative freelancers: designers, photographers, animators, graphic designers, prop stylists + more. It starts of with the basics of setting up shop, picking a name, establishing your brand and the like and goes through finding and keeping clients, calculating fees, contracts, how to get paid and all the technical nuts and bolts of freelancing. I think my favorite part of the book are the interviews with successful creative freelancers. What better way to learn how to do than to learn from the those who are actually doing it!
