Mad Illustrator

By now, you have spent some time honing your talent.

You have learnt that designing something cool is not so cool if your client is not cool with it. You think that you have bypassed the ‘change this colour na please’ phase only till it comes back to bite you in the ass. You might have realised that ‘Portfolio projects’ don’t really pan out if your idea does not work for the brand. You have spent hours looking at National Geographic and Lonely Planet layouts as part of your ‘knowledge gain’.  You have also gone and designed the occasional logo or a wedding card to help with your finances, only to realise that freelance doesn’t really work the way you thought it does.

However, you have now started becoming better at what you do. Projects excite you more than they scare you. You are getting the hang of thinking bigger and better always. Stuff that kept you awake at night has become simple and easy to crack. You now know that you have the right aptitude and you also know that you can work your ass off. Maybe it is time you gave yourself the right opportunity.

Required Skills: Great at drawing by hand, great at drawing digitally, good at communication, writing and expert with design tools. Should have a diverse and creative portfolio. Should be an expert at software.
