Gomediazine has a great article in their ‘industry insights’ section about 15 common mistakes made by designers in the music and apparel industry. I can relate because I have generated a lot of work for both of those industries over the last 3 years and I have encountered a lot of frustrating situations, particularly with the music industry. It just always seems to go haywire for me when I try to work for a band. They never have any money.
The article is very informative and offers some key insights to some issues that a lot of designers face no matter what aspect of the industry they might find themselves creating in.
