We all want to be successful as freelancers and designers. More importantly, we want to avoid pitfalls that may come about in our career. So I recently read this e-book called “7 Deadly Sins Designers Should Avoid“, which is for recent graduates, new freelancers, and full-time designers. Kyhry Taylor talks about things that aren’t discussed in the four walls of a classroom. He also provides useful resources and tools that will help you avoid these “deadly sins”.
The 7 deadly sins you should avoid are:
- No online portfolio
- Missing deadlines
- Working without a contract
- Working without a creative brief
- Not attending networking events
- Working with families or friends
- Not outsourcing

I found this eBook to be informative and insightful! He gives you his experience, expertise, and a ton of value in this eBook. I found useful details that I can even incorporate in my business even though I’ve been designing for over a decade. We all experience different things as we meet new clients and start new projects. Kyhry helps you avoid those disasters that can occur if you aren’t prepared. This eBook really gives you guidance and expertise and I highly recommend downloading it.
You will not only receive the eBook, but the author (Kyhry) also thrown in a great portfolio booklet InDesign template (as you see below) AND you can download a chapter for free at: http://kyhryt.com/7deadlysins/
