UCDA WORKSHOP: THE BUSINESS OF DESIGN
Friday, April 10, 2015
Portland State University
Let’s get down to business! Join us for a stimulating day full of everything you need to fill up your bag of tricks and take charge of your design career. This is the perfect workshop for new designers, students, free-lancers and those starting out in the business.
The Business of Design will cover a wide range of wow-I-really-need-to-know-this-stuff topics, including: setting up a business, invoicing and payment, selecting clients, doing your taxes, writing contracts, licensing your work, and mastering your social media presence.
Learn from local design professionals, ask them questions, see presentations from a panel of speakers, get your portfolio reviewed, and more! Get ready–it’s business time.
