Shel Perkins

Join us for this Business & Legal Issues for Designers Seminar May 20th

It takes more than talent to launch and sustain a successful design firm -- you need solid business skills as well. In this special presentation, design management guru Shel Perkins will share insider information on crucial legal and financial issues, including how to avoid common mistakes related to hiring, intellectual property, client contracts, cash flow, and more.

Whether you freelance full time, dream of opening your own shop, or just do freelance work on the side, this workshop can give you tips to help you work smarter.

Students, this is great information for you to know as you start your careers - information you don't always get in school.
