I am no longer a contract graphic designer. I sent the auto repair magazine to print for the last time today. It feels good. I will miss the steady paycheck and the sweet computer, but I will not miss the anxiety I felt every other week. If you know a graphic designer (Shadow …), go hug him or her. It is a hard job when you are under tight deadlines.
So it’s back to the drawing board for job searching. Fingers crossed.
