I’ve just put pen to paper on a new contract with publisher Peachpit. This book will focus on the business of design, answering the most frequently asked questions about starting and running a successful design business. The copy deadline is October, so the release-date should be just before the end of the year.
Many of you will run your own studio, be in self-employment, or freelance in your spare time. I’d love to share your experiences in the book, and for now, there’s one topic I’m particularly interested in:
How do you find new clients when starting a design business?
Alternatively, perhaps your approach didn’t work and taught you a valuable lesson.
Thanks to your incredible support, my first book is in eight languages, and I hope to double that with this attempt. So if you have a specific story you want to share with the world, it’d be superb if you get in touch.
Update: 18 November 2012
The book’s available now: Work for Money, Design for Love.
