I have been creating websites for about two years now after gaining a web certificate and so far I’m still enjoying this world. I usually learn new stuff as I build new sites but sometimes I feel like I have no projects to work on and practice new things since my main job is not as web designer, I work full time as mechanical engineer, anyways, I was wondering if this is something common for some of you or is there a freelance site that keeps you busy all the time.
What do you guys do when you ran out of projects or this simply never happens?
Is there a freelance website where I can do small projects?
This way I would have more stuff to practice on and of course make a little money (why not.)?
FS_Tigre, there’s always volunteer design – finding a small non-profit organization that does “good works” and asking if you can do their designs/redesigns, either pro bono or for a nominal fee. In return, you keep adding to your portfolio, you get to try some spiffy new techniques, and you give something back to the community.
But maybe you should try building some templates in your spare time and just selling them on forums and such, you’re bound to find buyers if the design is something they’re looking for. Just make it unique and eye-catching.
