Growing Your Design Business Part 1: Managing Design Subcontractors

Welcome to the first episode in our series-within-a-series we like to call “Growing Your Design Business.” In this and future episodes, we will focus on growing your network of talent, allowing your design business to flourish and go places you never knew possible. In this episode, we focus on the process of finding and managing design subcontractors. Why would you want to take this step? Many reasons: maybe you have an influx of work you can’t handle on your own. Maybe your skill set is limited, and hiring someone who can do what you can’t (or don’t want to) will allow your business to be more versatile. We go over how to find the best talent, how to pay them, and how to oversee their work. When done right, the work done by another designer can really extend the reach of your design business, allowing you to take on more clients and do a broader scope of work. We hope you enjoy this episode, and look out for future episodes within this mini-series! Listener Question This week, we take an audio question about how we as designers can best take care of our eyes.
