    Heaps of great resources on here!

    Just to introduce myself: I’ve been working in graphic design in various places for ages and have recently been on maternity leave whilst doing a few freelance design projects when I thought that actually, I didn’t want to go back to the daily commute and 5-day/8-6pm hours. So I thought I would like to try up the ante with my freelance contacts and make a proper business of it.

    Well, there’s a lot I need to learn from what I have looked up so far on this site! But I’m keen to learn! I have set up my website and now am raring to go…

    So greetings to all you fellow escapees!

    Hi Cate

    What a creative person you are! My visual creativity envy is showing its teeth again lol. I do words, not numbers, not graphic design, photography or other visual art. It’ll be interesting to watch your take on things.

    Congratulations on the new baby. I hope the business provides you with every opportunity to work for yourself in harmony with motherhood. :)

    Welcome Cate,

    I found your website very appealing – looks great. I was very interested in your “after the fire” painting, and noticed you are in Canberra. There is an “Introduce Yourself” topic in the ACT threads on Flying Solo – don’t forget to say hello to the other Canberrans there.

    Great website Cate. Did you develop it yourself?

    Congratulations on getting “out”. Though 1 thing I have found with having a home office, is that you are always at work!

    Thanks for all your kind words and welcomes folks!

    I’ll have to check out the ACT group, thanks for letting me know.

    I am glad you do words wordmistress as I’m not very good at the word side (it’s a very agonising process sometimes!). Might just need your help there at some stage!

    I do have a blog on the site with which I keep up to date with what’s coming out of the studio and any art/design stuff I’m interested in so keep checking it out.

    Yes Michael, I did develop it myself although it took a while! This was the first one I’ve done completely and finished from go to whoa, so quite a learning curve from my usual focus on print design.

    Hello and welcome to the forums!

    I think your work is too good to be so small on your website.

    Cheers

    Matt
