    Designers have to be freelance so you can explore and exploit your creativity any time of day!

    Depends on cost of living really. Freelance seems a good idea to get a foot in the door with an agency. Print design is a secondary skill these days, seems digital designers are getting most work. Having both skills is a must for a freelancer.

    I'm employed but with a little freelancing on the side. It would be great to have more freedom for vacationing and working from some remote corners on the planet, but it's also nice to not have to worry about finding clients & billings and whatnot.

    This is why I would enjoy it, you get a sense of focus that is hard to maintain when you're working by yourself. I know my attention span isn't good enough for it!

    I've been doing this as a side gig for a while. And you guys are right. It's so much more invigorating working with a team. Sometimes I look focus and get side tracked. You have to be very focused and discplined to do it on your own.

    I am currently a student, but I do some freelance work while in school. After graduation I would like to work for an agency but still freelance on the side. I am also investigating becoming a govt contractor. Living in the DC area there are lots of government agencies here and they contract a lot of their design work. I don't know if I'd ever go totally freelance though. I need to gain some more discipline and improve my time management skills.

    My idea is to work as a freelancer, I do not like advertising agencies.
