CDGD403 Professional Practice 3cr

Professional Practice is a deep dive into the
business of graphic design: how it works, how
it’s structured, and how best to prepare yourself
for a successful career. We’ll look at the
different career opportunities available to you
in design studios and what you can expect when
you’re hired. We’ll explore everything it takes
to be a freelancer from writing proposals and
setting prices to managing clients and delivering
work. We’ll investigate what it takes to start
your own studio, how to finance it, how to market
and sell your services, and how to win repeat
business. And we’ll see how entrepreneurial
designers are launching innovative new businesses
and services.
