After many months of thinking and re-thinking, I am leaving my job to become a full time freelance designer. I've been at my job for over 8 years now and leaving the stable income and benefits wasn't an easy decision. For a long time I have known this is the path for me, but actually taking the plunge was whole other matter. For the past 6 months I have slowly worked up the courage to leave the old job to create something of my own. I feel like I have grown through the process and gotten to know myself better. Now here I am and yes! I am excited. As of next Friday, I am a full time independent designer. What is this mean for me, I will continue to do design work on contract basis and use time to focus on print designs and other product developments. It's all in the works, and I will share with you as it develops. Here is a print to commemorate the new chapter in my life.
