    Getting a written contract with clear terms and conditions (limits on changes and revisions, etc.) is probably of the smartest things any designer can do. It can be an uncomfortable topic, but as far as I am concerned, clients who bristle at a contract are the s I end up spending way too much time managing scope creep on. The other advantage a contract gives you is that it gives you the ability to agree on late payment and collection penalties in writing, so if the relationship goes sour you have a binding legal document you can use to recoup fees and interest.

    Freelancing is good, but it's worrying thinking about where your next job is coming from.

    The combination of both is the best. You can pick & choose your freelance jobs based on enjoyment that way.

    There are many benifits of freelancing of wich is the freedome you get in your time but I think employed is more risk free and stable than freelancing.

    I like freelancing but it is challenge finding clients with good budgets. you really have to know good time management and also where to sign up online to find easy freelance jobs that can get your going. dribbble or elancer are my main sources and they're great. theres alot the key is to spread yourself out A LOT online to people can find you! local is also a good way to get income

    There is more than enough work to go around for freelance graphic designers. If you are willing to give great service and quality design you are guaranteed to do well as there is a shortage of both.

    People say the graphic design market is flooded. Yes it is, but flooded with designers who do sloppy work and have no idea how to treat their customers!

    What are your thoughts?
    I agree their is plenty of work around however too much of a risk to not have a steady income

    Are people finding this logo/design competition sites (like logo tournament) are having a detrimental effect on the quantity of freelance work?

    I'm finding some clients are beginning to rely upon these sites more and more.

    As a student I get a freelance job from time to time.
    Unfortunately the majority still thinks that means they don't have to pay an appropriate price.
