Part of the interesting fallout from quasi-unemployment was that I scoped out on my own as a freelance design dude — and not only that, but also interesting is that the work still trickles in. I mention it now because I spent a good chunk of time this evening progressing through some logo design for small company writing an iPhone app of some kind.
That’s what long weekends have become I guess. Time away from real work to get my side-business work done. Because even if I were a dishonest person (which I am not) I would not have the time anywhere but at home on weekends (and a few sparse evenings) to get any of this kind of work completed.
It’s been fun. I’m thinking of it as portfolio fodder, now: additions to the growing collection of semi-professional graphics and web work, slightly askew from the work I do for real money in real life, but that would be appreciated and respected by someone who needed a glimpse at the guts of my lingering talents.
It’s also weird, because most of those talents were originally fostered in those multiple redesigns of this very blog space. It used to be a regular event to see the pages hosting these random writings transformed in a swoosh of graphic design fury. Ya’ll thought I was nutty, but it paid off, didn’t it?
