A book about freelancing

I’ve been a freelancer for 13 years or so now, initially working as a web designer and then, for the past 10 years or so, as a freelance motion designer.

Like so many other freelancers before me, I made the leap into freelancing without truly knowing what would be involved. As a result, I’ve certainly had to learn a lot of lessons the hard way.

After seeing so many other freelancers making the same mistakes I’ve made, I decided to write a book about freelancing! It’s called: 101 Freelance Lessons (Learned The Hard Way).

book about freelancing

As the title suggests it’s a book about all the different lessons I’ve learned along the way throughout my freelance career. I share the good, the bad, and honestly the plain ugly bits of freelancing too. It’s a practical, honest, and realistic view of what freelance life is actually like in the real world.

Whether you’re a new freelancer, an existing freelancer, or even just someone interested in freelancing then I do hope you check out the book.

101 Freelance Lessons (Learned The Hard Way) is out now and available here.

Rewilding the planet with freelance animation and motion design

We've only got one planet, and right now it needs all the help it can get. Climate change and biodiversity loss are massive challenges that we need to tackle head on.

That's why, for every freelance animation project over £1000 a donation of 1% of the total budget will be made to the World Land Trust, on your behalf.

The money will go towards WLT's "buy an acre" programme; buying up and protecting vital habitats around the world, and helping fight against climate change.

Any motion design projects under £1000 will have a tree planted on your behalf.

Acres saved so far:

Thanks to my wonderful clients and the animations we've produced, enough money has been donated to save around:

17.5 Acres of vital habitats around the world.

Just think, your animated explainer video or logo animation could also be helping fight the climate crisis!
