Dear freelance designer, from a freelance designer

My names Jake and i have been freelancing part-time for the past 2 years on and off whilst working full-time for my local design agency in Warwickshire #middleoftheuk

I am not here or writing to tell you how you SHOULD or SHOULDN’T Freelance, i am basically here making the pit-falls and hopefully some success throughout and documenting exactly what tools and products i use to help me & ultimately you through the day/month/year.

without further ado let’s get started with something i use at least twice a day…

ProductHunt

Product Hunt is a curation of the best new products, every day where you can discover the latest mobile apps, websites, and technology products that everyone’s talking about.

This is an absolute must as you are able to completely tailor your products into collections for future use, you can view my personal Freelance Graphic Design Starter Kit to get an idea on the sort of products which may notice in the next couple of posts.

Searching through products or collections makes it easy to find out if there’s an app to make my life easier or more productive. “Hunters” “Makers” and general public are intwined to make it a very personal visit where you can improve, comment and chat with the creators of the products.

Short but sweet, this is an invite, a teaser if you must for what is to come, i’ll make the mistakes, so you don’t have to… unless you’re one of those who learn by your own mistakes and like wasting time/money.
