After spending a vast amount of my career freelancing within varying design agencies and studios, I soon realised there was a certain type of character that works within them.
As 2017 departs and we embrace the new year, I head into 2018 with a desire and hunger to really push forward and develop my skill set.
After three years back in full-time work, I returned to freelance in July (2017) and spent the following months finding my feet and laying the foundations for this year.
Over the last few Christmas’s it has become tradition for me to do my Doodle Advent Calendar. Every day I’d post a new doodle in the build-up to the big day.
I’ve been doing it for around 5 years now, maybe even longer, but each year I would find it that little bit harder to come up with original ideas.
For those of you that have visited my blog before, you may have noticed it is looking a little lighter than it used to.
Over the years I have blogged sporadically, mainly about work and my creations. I used it more as a window to showcase what I had been producing, but as platforms like Instagram became larger and more accessible I began to switch my focus to these.
So today I took a leap of faith. Today I quit my job to return to the freelance world in the aim of seeking new opportunities, developing new skills and most importantly to grasp (or at least attempt to), that golden work/life balance.
