Starting Your Own Communication Design Firm
We've taken one of our most popular articles ever, updated it, and are now offering it as a free download. Starting Your Own Communication Design Business was developed from a multi-part workshop and article created by Guild National Secretary Lara Kisielewska. In it, she shares her 20+ years' of experience in running her own design firm. Guild members can also review the archive of Lara's webinars on the topic. Download the whitepaper here.
