Design Consulting as a Service

As graphic and web designers, we do a lot of behind-the-scenes work that we don’t always charge for. But what if we did?

In this episode, we expand upon a listener question to talk about the topic of charging clients for all those little things we do that don’t count as “design” work. Things like reading and responding to emails, meetings, and even upfront discovery. We also talk about the idea of breaking consulting off as a separate stand-alone service you can offer to clients. It’s a great way to demonstrate your value, and get away from being a commodity-driven business.

We also answer a listener question about transitioning from a 9-5job that offers a tiny bit of design responsibility to a full-fledged design role/ solopreneur.
