Interview with Debbie Greenaway
Here is an interview with Debbie Greenaway who graduated from preston illustration in 2008 I found it on the Business Boom Bolton website. It's interesting to hear Debbie's stories of life after graduation working as an illustrator / craft / maker.
"WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU OFFER TO SOMEONE LOOKING TO FOLLOW A SIMILAR PATH INTO FREELANCE DESIGN AND WORKING FOR YOURSELF?
Make a start – doesn’t have to be big but a start in the right direction will do. Make sure you organise yourself and your time. Remember to continue being creative as time can run away from you if you don’t make yourself sit down and do what it is you are supposed, to actually be doing... After that, if needs be, register as self- employed, start a blog, join twitter/facebook and make sure you have a website, business cards and an online shop or two.
Most of the online platforms are free to join and there is a whole community out there to get involved in. Ask questions at any time, no matter how silly they sound, people will always try and help or point you in the direction of someone else who may know."
