advice column

Bri Emery and I are both freelancer graphic designers but she does it fulltime and I do it on the side with a fulltime salary job. We have had interesting career paths that we often get asked many questions about. "How did you get your foot in the door?" "Do you give your friends and family a discount?". "How do you handle a client that never pays on time?". We wanted to create a place to have a honest conversation about our freelance woes that our friends could reference. Every week for a year, I would create an illustration to represent a question asked by a reader from the previous week. Bri and I would both answer it which gave them two perspectives (often times with opposite answers).
