I'm thinking of going freelance full time...
REGISTER TO REMOVE ADS
I am in the process of building up my freelance output, and am spending every waking hour asking myself if I have what it takes to go full time (currently working 55 hour week as an inhouse designer, so you can imagine it's a struggle to put the hours in that I'd like).
Can I have some honest opinions as to whether you think my portfolio is up to the standard of a full time freelancer?
I'm going to rebrand and upgrade to a snazzier website - but just looking for opinions on what the freelance community at large thinks?

Thanks in advance. Be honest, but don't be brutal ;-)

I can't open your link on my handheld....too much work.
I'll try to look when I'm on my regular computer.Christina Wilkinson

Hi there youve already answered this question for yourself with a no from being so uncertain.
From what i can see on your website i would not give up your job yet i just think there is alot more options for clients out there sorry.
If you are serious about becoming a freelance designer though i would spend a few months or even a year updating your skills and learning whats in etc and then approach when you feel your ready
and you will be giving yourself a much better opportunity.

Are you a full time freelancer yourself?
I'm not uncertain to be honest, I just want to get a few opinions from those who've made a success of it. I already spend every evening and weekend doing briefs, but just feel ready for the proper plunge.

I've been looking at renting a work space, looked at Electric works, Burton Street Foundation, Bank Street Arts and Sheffield Technology Parks. Any others you're familiar with (I'm based in S6)?
