I've been learning graphic design for the last six months, and I am gaining confidence, enough to do some side jobs for friends/relatives/relative's friends. I eventually would like to branch out to small businesses (freelance)...and maybe even farther down the line getting a full time job as a graphic designer.
I would like some tips on what to do and what not to do. This can be anything from how to handle difficult clients to marketing myself to avoiding common mistakes in creating typography and images.
