We went exploring..
One common misconception of the modern freelance designer — especially in the world of the web — is the idea of some kid sitting in their pyjamas, playing in Photoshop and bending over for clients. Forget about that. This is a business. The best business in the world. We, as designers, are shaping the world for each other and for our children. We get to leave something amazing in the world. Strap on a suit. Or at least fill those pyjamas with confidence.
Repeat after me: my clients need me. My clients need me. My clients need me. They don’t know it until they’re left without you. And it’s your job to earn their trust that you’re going to do the job well. If you think something is a bad idea, say it to them. Tell them why. Don’t just treat it like another paycheck. You’re responsible for putting something good into the world; and we will hound you for every flash banner and dark pattern you leave in your path.
