People Pleasing: Why Do Some People Always Say That They Don't Care About What Other People Think?

How to Make Money in Graphic Design

Design is Thinking Made Visible’ and ‘A Good Design Makes a Product Understandable’. Keeping this in mind, in terms of business, making products and services become understandable through design is a challenge. There is no denying the fact that humans are highly creative but how one creates to make others understand the creation is again a challenge. Reducing the gap between creative ideas and making people understand them are talented graphic designers across the world. 

Design is Everywhere
If one looks around, one would find that we are surrounded by all kinds of designs. Be it the logo of your laptop or the excellent designs of the t-shirt you had worn the last weekend, graphic designs are everywhere. In order to make an impact on the minds of prospective customers, businesses look to hire graphic design experts to communicate through the language of designs and derive benefit out of it. 

Changing Scenario
Compared to the previous market scenario of demand and supply, where there was ample amount of employers with less graphic designers available, the present situation has certainly changed. Presently, there is an equal balance of designers and employers available in the market.
Expressing ideas is satisfying for a creative person but at the end of the day, everyone has bills to pay. Now, let’s see the scenario from a designer’s perspective. How can a graphic designer make a living? How can they make good money through online platforms? Here are few tips on how a designer can make the most out their designing skills and earn high income:
Creative Service Marketplace: The emergence of online freelancing sites is a blessing in disguise for both employers and freelance designers. An increasing number of freelance graphics design jobs online has made life easier for designers. One can now easily join an online creative service marketplace, create a profile, upload one’s portfolio and then start getting work from clients across the world. One can work for several clients at a time and most importantly, get paid on time.

Start an Online Business: One of the easiest ways to establish oneself and earn money is by starting an online business. There are scores of online businesses that require the skills of graphic designers to execute several needs. A graphic designer can offer services like designing ads, web designs, logo, icon designs, banner, brochure designs, etc. Create your own website and make sure the site is designed in a unique way with lots of excellent graphic design all over. People visiting the site would obviously expect to see something different from the generic sites since they are entering a designer’s den. Make sure you upload your portfolio, list your services on the site and write some creative lines on your take on designing and yes don’t forget to mention your contact details (well, yes, it did happen as some people are so busy highlighting their creative side that they actually forgot to mention their contact details!).
Grab the Offline Opportunity: Just like offline businesses, online business houses too require graphic designers for numerous requirements. They need graphic designs and arts for their online ads, icons for their web pages and blogs and also for their buttons on the websites. In fact, some employers look to hire graphic design experts to contribute in the web designing as a whole.
Social Media Groups: The social media is a hub for possibilities, especially for freelance graphics design jobs online. It’s just that one has to recognize the right funnel that would lead to opportunities. There are many online groups like freelance graphic designer jobs, media jobs, graphic designers on Facebook, Twitter, among others, where people post their requirements pertaining to graphic designing. Thus, it is a great way to get work online and earn money.


I’m sure you think it’s odd that I am encouraging you to Make Some Mistakes, but think about it –  haven’t you learned invaluable lessons from what you judged as “mistakes”?
I have learned so much from the mistakes I have made in the past, that I no longer even call them “mistakes” – that sounds too negative to me. I actually now love my mistakes… not something I ever thought I’d say out loud!  So yes, I am encouraging you to go ahead and Make Some Mistakes today… and see what happens.  Think of all the opportunities to learn, to change, to grow, and to expand.
So many people are afraid to even take a few small risks because they might trigger a “mistake.”  So they don’t try anything new.  They stay stuck in their lives without taking any opportunities for new growth. Trying something new can be so refreshing.  Trust me, I’m one of those people who hates change… I always have!  But I’ve learned to see change as an opportunity, and learned to love my mistakes because of the incredibly rich lessons I learned from them. I am who I am today because of the awesome lessons I learned from behaviors I once called “mistakes.” I no longer see them as negative, foolish or bad. I see them as necessary, expansive, and brilliant as far as contributing to my emotional growth!
A great benefit of making a mistake is that you will learn something you didn’t know before, and maybe you can use this lesson in your future.  You will also find new silver linings and new “aha” moments that will be of benefit to you.
There are so many upsides to trying new behaviors, friendships or taking risks in your life.  And when I talk about risks, I’m not talking about going skydiving.  I’m talking about reaching out to new people, trying new behaviors, writing about new topics, teaching something new, parenting in a new way…
What I know is that when you take the edge off your fear about making mistakes, life seems easier, less threatening and more manageable. That’s what I continue to want, less fear in my life.
So, are you ready? I know it will be worth it for you to Make Some Mistakes!  You’ll notice the improvement in your vibration, the increase in your optimism and a higher level of creativity that shows up in all areas of your life.
What does this have to do with attracting abundance? When you are willing to Make Some Mistakes, you are automatically expanding what the universe will return to you energetically.  When you are willing to take risks that might lead to some mistakes, you communicate to the universe that you are open to new ideas and new channels for abundance. Your vibration will immediately feel more alive and abundant, and the results will be exciting!
Our thoughts, feelings and behaviors carry energy…
Our vibration matters!
Remember that the Universe hears your vibration not your words.  The principles of the Law of Attraction remind us that we will receive more of what we are “broadcasting” to the Universe when we are in alignment with it.  When the universe is able to receive a clear message from you then the Law of Attraction works in your favor.
