A Pro-Bono Start
I have recently read "Work for money, design for love" by David Airey in which Airey aims to give advice to graphic designers hoping to set up on their own. One of the areas which was touched on by Airey in his book was the examples of Pro Bono work which has been carried out by practitioners in their careers and the benefit it can have, not only as a way of giving back to your local community but also in establishing connections.
I therefore decided to approach my local market which is re-launching and aiming to draw in traders and buyers under a new image. I offered to give the markets a new identity and I met with Cheryl, who is directing the project at the weekend and therefore we came up with some very good ideas after I had asked questions which were drawn up beforehand. I'm excited to undergo this project as I know that it will be seen by many and hopefully will do the job of bringing in many new traders and buyers into the market town which has lost it's market.
