Richard Gregory – Studio Kind
Why did you become self-employed?
I first started working as a freelance designer 20 years ago, having been employed in the same studio in the same role for 10 years. For me it was the need for self direction and to have the freedom to take risks. I did an MA which gave me the drive and confidence to make the change.
What main challenges have you faced whilst being self-employed?
The biggest challenge has been developing professional confidence.
How do you make it work? (Are you full-time self-employed, or part-time?)
Do you have one piece of advice you would like to share about being self-employed?
Think and plan beyond what you think is possible and stay open to risk taking and change.
