Asking a creative to do something for free or cheaper as “it would be great for your portfolio” really is an insult. Yet graphic designers, photographers, artists, and copywriters hear it all the time. There are many people who try to lowball or, even worse, don’t want to pay creators for their work at all. That’s rude.
How lucky am I that I love what I do and do what I love? This write-up tells you a little bit about where I come from, and it explains how Sweet Orange came about. I’ve had an exciting career so far, and I’m so grateful for the experiences that came my way. I can’t wait to see where this journey goes next!

We welcome a good challenge, and with Sweet Orange I’ve written about things that I previously had no idea about. No day is the same in this business! Occasionally, I have to say ‘no’ to projects. If there is no click, no excitement, or no clear brief from a client what they want or need, it is not going to work.
