If you are fond of design and would love to make money as a designer, no matter part time or full time, there are many options available. And for the same, let this article guide you to decide which option is the best fit for you.
- Work for a design agency
You can get a job at a design agency and spend your time designing client’s websites. When you are a hired designer, you can focus on the design work with no kind of indulgence in business related issues like scoring clients. Working for a design agency will give you a fixed salary and many benefits. You also get to interact with clients and coworkers and learn a lot from them.
- Get a job as an in house designer
Here in this option, rather than working for the clients, you will be working on your employer’s website. For instance, you could be the web designer for a financial company and your duties would be to design and maintain the company website. Working for a company as an inhouse designer may offer same pros and cons like working for a design agency, but here you will not be working with variety of client projects.
- Freelance web designer
In freelancing too, you would be working mostly on the client projects, but you may also have to handle the business aspects like finding and securing the leads, dealing with contracts, bookkeeping etc. the best thing about working as a freelancer is the flexibility it offers. You have control over the clients you work with. You also have control over your working hours but you need to meet your deadlines. Here you may not need to depend on an employer to get clients, but you have to manage everything on your own.
