Paperback: 81 pages
Airgid Media Inc. (August 2005)
After attending industry expert, Kevin Airgid's recent talk at FITC, I thought it would be a good idea to check out his latest book, Web Designer's Success Guide: how to profit from freelance web design.
Web Designer's Success Guide is a light read but loaded with valuable information. If you're just starting out freelancing or thinking of taking the plunge, this is the book for you. I've been a freelancer for over 6 years now and found quite a few helpful tips.
Kevin gives you advice on managing clients and projects, pricing, managing the creative process, etc. He even gives step by step instructions on installing PHPMailist, installing WordPress blog software and instructions on using Contribute. I enjoyed his “Office on the Cheap” chapter and now have a great idea for a new desk! Also included are interviews with industry leaders, Jason Vaughn, CreativePublic.com, Kirill Brusilovsky www.crossmind.net and Jason Arber PixelSurgeon.com. Interesting articles by scriptygoddess Jennifer Stuart and Scott Allen thevirtualhandshake.com are also in the book.
Web Designer's Success Guide is definitely a must for anyone starting out as a freelance web designer.
