As a freelance designer in Copenhagen I love the cyclical nature of the seasons with regard to clients. I have two busy periods as regards new clients and new inquiries.
The first is obvious, January. Middle to late January, the emails and phone calls come in. Companies have a new budget to spend, new ideas to implement. Not everyone is a fit, either me for them, or them for me, but I always try and direct clients to where may be a better fit.
The other time, and the most busy, is late August and September. A Danish friend of mine who’s freelance told me years ago, after a long restful summer, people in business have ideas, are energised, therefor new projects are begun. This period always brings me enough work, to get me to Xmas, and the January period. And off we go again. An opportunity to meet new people, learn about businesses, and work together to solve creative problems.
