Congratulations - your just created a new character - a web designer. Your special ability to absorb a myriad of coffee, resistance to sleep and linguistic secret - HTML and CSS. Of course, let's not forget about the possession of Photoshop or Gimp other (depending on which clan you belong). Your enemy is all sorts of racial scary ASAPy with a deadline and other Fuck Ups.

I would like to present you some tricks as you can "wyekspić" to a higher level.



1. To achieve a better effect you invest


Unfortunately, at the very beginning you have to spend a few follicles of gold for the purchase of equipment and other important things such as. A large cup of coffee, etc. You do not earned, and already have to spend, so naturally begin to look at where to find money, where will you can go the other way, to make it cheaper, as well as seeing what else we can do ourselves.

At the very beginning for a moment we can just play - to know the different sources and different ways of "free creation". Because the network is enough free resources that only ask to use them ... Unfortunately, in reality it turns out that looking for a good free pictures on the stocku, which fits exactly to the project, is intoxicating hours, during which advice would you give to quietly earn these pair of gold that you spend at the photo on a paid slope. Then there are nerves and frustration caused by the pushing trillion eight hundred and thirty-second photo page turnip ...

Another important advantage of investing is that you will achieve better effect, which will attract more customers who will fill your bellows ducats.


2. Never stand still - developing and educate


This is perhaps the most important point on the road to achieve the level of Master. Without a daily dose of knowledge, you can never move to the next stage. You do not know new techniques, so that your work will be better, faster and easier.

Every day I start reading:

Fast brickets allows me to find inspiration for a new day, learn about the many exciting technologies, and most importantly, open your mind to creative action. As a result, I sit down to work full of optimism and new ideas.


3. Establish a plan and follow it consistently


Each plan is better than none. That is why starting your adventure as a web designer, sit down for a moment and think about what development path for myself you see. Where would you like to see next year? As you already know, you think what tasks can lead you there and share your path into smaller sections.

When the plan for the plan to go down for half a year and then a month to sit down and think about whether it is real. If you decide that such a clip it yourself next to the monitor. As a result, you will see it every day and he could see if you're on the right track. And if you move away from the target is a "bundle poślady" and return to the right path.


4. Meet with people


Interact with people is the basis of creative work ... although in my opinion is the basis of each job. Talks, discussions, and sometimes even quarrels allow for a fresh look at the work. It is the people and the relationships with them are the main driving force of our work - whether it's an argument with a customer, or a thrilling discussion with another designer - each of these interactions brings a lot to our work.

We can not shut up in his small castle and pick their great work, because as at the end of it we go to make a great "tadam" and present them audience, it may be that the world is already in a completely different place.


5. Remember that you are not an octopus - handy extra pair of hands


Unfortunately, this is true. We have fantastic eight tentacles, which we can do 4 times more things than a normal person. Some reportedly working on it, but unfortunately the effects are rather poor - at most one additional hand, and it's still on his back ...

Then we have to somehow deal. The best part of the duties outsource to someone else. Of course, here we come to another problem - when the step is that we can not afford to hire someone? But our income is not fixed?What if we do not have jobs?

Preferably in this case, the commission simply part of a project to make someone else - on a single contract. If the situation persists for a long period of time, it's probably time to invite someone to collaborate on a permanent basis.

Also remember that some of the work such as accounting, etc. You can immediately go ahead and outsource professionals - believe that every minute in the end will count.
