Passive Income Ideas & Tips For Designers

Podcast cover
Read more

As designers there are so many ways of using our talents to make money — so why do so many of us rely solely on client work? In this episode, we answer a recent listener question about the ins and outs of passive income. And since the three of us don’t do too much of that, we decided to enlist the help of Brad Woodard.

Brad sells everything from brushes to posters, to paid courses — which means he earns money even when he’s not working for clients. Listen for some amazing advice on how to get started down this road for yourself.

We also answer a new listener question about your contract when you’re working as a sub for another designer.

Help! My Client Thinks He’s a Designer!

Podcast cover
Read more

As designers, it’s completely normal to get feedback from your clients. When it can become frustrating, however, is when that feedback turns into a full-on concept with instructions to “just make this.”

It can be confusing. After all, they are supposedly paying us for our expertise, not just our ability to trace and digitize. While this can sometimes be a teachable moment for our clients, there are those that cannot be talked out of their own ideas, even if ours are more considered.

This episode was inspired by a listener question from Darren Doyle of Studio93. He recently went through this situation and wanted our advice on how to handle it. We thought the question needed some clarification, and so we decided to go long-form with it.

You can hear Darren’s whole story, see how things got to this point, what he could have done to prevent it, and ultimately what happens next.

We also answer a listener question about how to save for retirement as a creative solopreneur.

Finding Design Clients Through Social Media

Podcast cover

As creative solopreneurs or agency owners, there are no shortage of ways to find great clients. We can attend networking mixers, send out emails, or rely on good old-fashioned word of mouth. But one we keep getting one particular question time and time again — how do you use the power of social media to find new business?

This week, we are joined by social media expert, (don’t call him a guru!) Josh Hoffman. Josh teaches us the importance of establishing your brand on social media, how to put yourself in front of the right people, and what to say and do once you have their attention.

Josh also talks about the importance of the principle of playing “the long game” with potential clients, and the concept of “killing them with content.” There are a million great tips in this episode, so you won’t want to miss a second.

We also answer a new listener question about how to make your design resumé stand out to potential employers.

Getting Our Mood Board On

Podcast cover
Read more

If you’ve ever felt like your first client comps aren’t nailing it, you really need to give mood boards a try. Mood boards are a way to save time by quickly communicating an overall design direction to your client for approval. This can involve just one that they need to approve, or multiple variations from which they can choose a direction. Either way, by getting this visual feedback up front, your first comps will come much closer to hitting the bulls-eye.

The gang talks about their own experiences with mood boards, as well as tips and tricks to make sure you’re getting everything you can out of this exercise, (and have a little moment of creative zen along the way.)

We also answer a listener question about landing an agency job with no prior agency experience, (as well as little to no digital experience.)

Client-Focused Portfolio Websites

We’ve discussed it before, but it’s a new year, and we have some brand new perspectives on our biggest marketing asset as designers — our portfolio websites. Wes just went through a major redesign, and Nick is currently planning one as well, so listen for our tips on how to make the most of yours.

One of the biggest takeaways from this episode is to keep your prospective clients in mind. They don’t care about you, or what you DO. They care about how you will help THEM. That means conveying benefits, not just how amazing a designer you are.

We also answer a new listener question about what we use for project management and communications throughout a project.

*NOTE: Apologies in advance for some sound issues on this episode. There is static here and there, but this is a valuable conversation that we still wanted to share.

Why Should Clients Choose You?

Podcast cover

All designers want to get to the point in their career where they can call the shots and work with the clients they want to work with. But how do you get there? By being the kind of designer (and businessperson) that clients consistently want to work with.

In this episode, we’re joined for a second time by branding expert Terri Trespicio. Terri dishes out some pretty amazing advice on how to figure out exactly what you do, how to communicate that with your clients, and how to make them care.

Only by conveying a unique value to your prospects can you expect to stand out and generate enough interest to propel you to where you can call the shots.

We also answer a new listener question about the ethics and logistics of adding projects (where you had a limited revisionist role) to your portfolio.

Have you ever had an unsatisfied client? At some point, I think every designer has run into this problem. It’s how you deal with it that matters.
