Business Classes for Freelance Designers

Going into business for yourself can be intimidating. Now, in addition to finding clients and completing design jobs, you’re also your own boss, accountant, janitor, art director, and IT specialist. But luckily, there are ways to prepare yourself for a freelance graphic design career, including business classes at graphic design school. In fact, the Bureau of Labor Statistics suggests that business and related classes could help aspiring graphic designers. If you’re wondering what classes could help prepare you for a freelance career, consider taking the following:

  • Business Principles: Understanding pricing, overhead costs, technology uses, data-based decision-making and client relations are only some of the business principles you’ll need to understand to have a thriving career as a freelance designer.
  • Marketing: Finding clients can be a challenge, and while a great portfolio and resume are important, you also want to make sure that you know how to present and promote yourself before that initial contact.

  • Math/Accounting: You’re going to have to keep track of your own finances, and knowing the basics will help prevent you from being thrown off by software glitches or computer failures. You’ll need to calculate what you charge per hour or per project, taxes and business expenses, among other things.

Knowing what’s involved in starting your own business and working from home can be extremely valuable as well. Check out this post for a look at one freelance designer’s typical day, or this one about keeping your freelance gig.
