I hope your business is still thriving in these shaky economic times.
You were a treasured client of mine before I went into teaching full time. The school I have dedicated nearly every waking hour to for the past year and a half is laying me off. I am therefore considering returning to working for myself. If so, I would be available for design work part time until June, and then full time after that. I have kept up all of my Web and design skills; in fact, I am teaching those subjects at the high school. You can see my graphic design students’ work here.
I am considering rebranding myself as Blue Lobster Art & Design. I would offer portraits and other art products in addition to Web & graphic design.
You can help me decide whether this is a smart move (leaving teaching for a return to self-employment). Do you foresee any design projects you might steer my way if I became available again? Do you know anyone else who might be interested in an honest, dedicated, and effective designer?
Thank you very much for any feedback you can give.
