What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
There are always online classes that we have to take to keep sharp in our trade. Not to mention the creative seminars from some of the venders of the software we use to create a clients project. You have to keep learning if you want to succeed.
What types of customers have you worked with?
The most common jobs I do are starter sites, graphic design (both web and print) and book covers and online publishing.
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Make sure that your getting what you pay for. A web/graphic designer should work close with their clients to get plenty of feedback on the direction and progression of the project. Even though the designer is the pro, and will know ways that can enhance your projects effectiveness...you know your business!
