About the book

This refreshing, straight-talking advice guide from Logo Design Love writer and designer David Airey answers the questions all designers have about launching and running their own design businesses. In fact, the book was inspired by the many questions David receives from hundreds of thousands of people who visit his design websites.

Work for Money, Design for Love

  • How do I find new clients?
  • How much should I charge for my design work?
  • When should I say no to a project?
  • How do I handle difficult clients?

David answers these questions and many more using anecdotes and case studies garnered from his own experience as a successful self-employed graphic designer. He also shares tips and lessons learned from designers around the world including such creative professionals as Ivan Chermayeff, Jerry Kuyper, Eric Karjaluoto, Simon Manchipp, Alina Wheeler, Khoi Vinh, and Armin Vit.
