What does your office space look like?
I share a big room with 5 other freelancers. I have the biggest monitor – so I can’t see anybody, but everybody can see me. It’s a bit weird, but for some reason, I have no problem with it.

Do the brainless work during the day, while your clients call you. Work at night if you need some inspiration or have to concentrate. 

You’re better than your colleagues to:
I love when I have a big playground. Good to design for a client a simple, clean image, then to another a playful one.
I think I also good at team working: with copywriters, interior designers or other graphic designers. Unity is the strength!

Watch your step! Because I always looked too far while walking, so I usually fall down to the floor. That’s a good advice for a freelancer as well.
