Hey guys. I’ve been freelancing in the creative industry in London for the last 10 years. Along the way I’ve learnt a thing or two. I’d like to pass this stuff along to my fellow creatives. Based on my own experience, as well as some great tips from fellow creatives, I’ve put together a free, comprehensive guide for all things freelance in the London creative industry. If you’re a copywriter, designer, photographer, art director, creative director or illustrator currently freelancing in London, or looking to freelance in London this guide is for you.

I think this is awesome and have wanted to do something similar. This could be the first of an awesome series of guides :)

@bentossell Thanks Ben, yes initially I thought of making it a PDF, which is actually a bit old school. So I went with the web based mobile guide. It will be an iterative process, but I'm happy to get this one live : )

@nickclement Thanks Nick! So far so good. I can iterate based on feedback which is good. Already had a guy contact me in regards to some corrections which I fixed pronto : )
