In March of 2003 I got my first real job as a graphic designer at an ad agency. In July of 2010 I left that job. I was there for 7 years, 3 months, and 22 days. This month in 2017, I can say I’ve topped that number. As of October 23rd, if my math holds, I will have been an independent designer for 7 years, 3 months, and 23 days. Now I can officially say I’ve been independent for the majority of my (almost) 15-year career. This has been on my mind seriously for the last couple years. And now that it’s here, it feels good. A big goal accomplished. A milestone reached. Another marker along this journey of fame and fortune.
With one important milestone down, time to throw out the next markers to strive for. But that’s a post for another time. Until then, cheers!
