Awareness in the design community.

As a freelancer, I work pretty much alone; it is good to have an organization where one can meet fellow designers, network, share new ideas, and find valuable business resources where it would be more difficult for me to find on my own.

Before I became a freelancer, like most designers who work for somebody else, I never thought much about the business aspect of running a design studio. Reality hits hard when I went solo. I am glad AIGA has so many resources that talked about business in the design industry. The local AIGA chapters (I’ve joined both Chicago and Los Angeles chapters in the past) have also brought awareness on important business issues that is very helpful.
