I mentioned in my last news post that I was to be featured in a Computer Arts publication by the name of ‘The Freelance Handbook‘. I’ve just got my hands on a copy and was pretty stoked to see my feature spread over 8 full pages. An extremely generous gesture by Future Publishing and very humbling.

The feature profile goes over my career in brief, showcases select pieces of web and identity work as well as interviews me about my process, self promotion, pricing tips, business basics and more. An outline and photos can be seen below.
