Dear Freelancers: the Market Doesn’t Need to Know Whether or Not You Went to Design School

The market, your customers, doesn’t need to know whether or not you went to design school.

The market doesn’t wrestle with your imposter syndrome.

The market doesn’t care whether you’ve put 1 hour or 2 months into your work. 

The market needs someone that works for the market.

The market wants work that appeals to their tastes. 

The market wants a functional website that gets them the product they need in their lives. 

The market wants work that works for the market (and that has nothing to do with your insecurities). 

The market wants design that accomplishes something, whether that is building brand awareness, promoting a sale, or featuring a new product.

The market is constantly looking for better, and it could be that they’re looking for you.
