My business started as a one-person studio. I was pounding the streets with little or no experience, always wondering what's next. I managed to convince some prospective clients to take a chance with me. Result: a slow but promising start.
Graphic designer Robert Bock has his roots in advertising agencies. From there, he moved on to small and mid-sized firms. Many of his clients have attributed part of their success to his amazing concepts and skills.
My reward came from the degree of success each client experienced. I then knew that I had done my job well.
According to Robert, if you want to succeed in business, you should know your clients really well. You should be honest in expressing your opinions. Your focus should be on satisfying your clients' needs, not on winning any kind of award.
If you're in the market for a straightforward, creative, no-nonsense graphic designer, then you know who to call.
