Top customer reviews
Ilasco and Cho are great authorities on this subject because they themselves have turned their own talents into extremely flourishing careers. Ilasco runs a studio by her own name which produces stationery and home products. She has written a few other books and serves as the creative director of Anthology, a new home and lifestyle magazine. Cho not only runs her own successful stationery business, and writes two blogs [...]), but also has a consulting business for new small business owners and freelancers.
Creative Inc book fills the void of information for artists wanting to turn their vision to a full time business. The book is written in a casual and straightforward manner, making it a must read for anyone trying to make the jump to freelance or starting a small business.
Thank you for this gem!
While it also didn't feel like an "Ultimate" guide, I have no problem with that part of the title, a little exaggeration never hurt anybody, but the "Creative" part about it mislead me into buying a book that wasn't for me. Pretty surprised that copywriters were barely mentioned considering the bulk of the freelance market is mostly comprised of designers, photographers and writers.
In a nutshell, this book is for you if: you're a newbie designer or other visual arts and/or new to freelancing.
Fellow copywriters, this book is not for you. "Creative" just seemed a little too broad in this case.
I was pleasantly surprised by how much I learned from this book. It's a well written, down to earth guide, that's very informative for anyone in the creative freelance business.
Not necessarily a straight read-through; I jumped around a lot.
