Direct from the Creative Freelancer Conference 2011, join us for an expansion of one of the favorite sessions with veteran freelance illustrative designer, Von Glitschka. Von will present the highlights of his highly praised CFC presentation on how to develop your portfolio and build working relationships with larger firms as an independent creative. But that’s not all. After a short presentation, we’ll go behind the scenes in a Q&A with Marketing Mentor Ilise Benun, asking the questions everyone wants answers to, such as, “How exactly do you get the work you really want?”
Attendees will learn:
* How Von priced a project for Nike
* What to show (and what not to show) in your portfolio
* How and where to share your work
