Freelancing again but pricing eludes me

I haven't done freelancing in several years, and I've decided to get back into it. My freelance gigs before have always been for a close circle of musicians, and I charged a happy median of what they could afford vs what I was comfortable with. Now I'm looking to expand away from people I know personally (and musicians tend to be difficult to work with, no offense to the musicians in the crowd), and I'm really not sure where to start on what to charge. For reference: I specialize in logo design, advertisement design (print ads, retail handouts/mailouts, etc), business card design (my personal favorite thing to do), photography, and I'm venturing into web design. Is there a guide out …

Occupational Hazards?

I've worked a few different design jobs and for the past year I've been in a studio that requires a lot of scrolling up and down. Think multipage layouts, long webpages, and the fact that I love flying through a few sites for inspo whenever I get a spare second. I rarely work with a still screen. Recently I get extremely dizzy at work and have even experienced vertigo while driving. Once I sit still it goes away, but it always comes back whenever I look at my monitors at work. Does anyone else have experience with this or ideas on how to make it stop? submitted by /u/immadinosaur44 [link] [comments] Read more: reddit.com

I’m about to graduate with a BA in Journalism. Is it possible to get an MFA in Graphic Design without a BFA?

It took me a while to really figure out what I want to do with my life, and just now I am realizing my love for great graphic design. I'm about to graduate from university with a BA in Journalism. I already have a pretty extensive desgin/art portfolio, I already know Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign, even After Effects. I've taken some courses on graphic design online, but I'd really love a whole-ham design university program. Luckily I have enough money left over from going to a cheap state school, and some savings, to afford a Masters. Is it possible for me to get into a decent MFA program without a BFA?
