I’m still TimMo Ltd, but now I’m a freelancer
Freelance designer, artworker, Wokingham, Reading, Bracknell, Marlow, Berkshire
Freelancers are a funny bunch. There’s good ones and bad ones. Obviously, it goes without saying I’m one of the good ones. But then of course I would say that. I’m a bit biased.
But joking aside, the biggest problem I’ve had as a freelancer is not having 3 of me. I find that once I start freelancing somewhere, my stay usually gets extended. This is great, but it does tie me down and make me unavailable elsewhere, which then means studios go to another freelancer. But that’s a good problem to have. It usually means I’m either dead quiet (as I am now, which is why I’m redoing my website!) or in a position where 3 companies want to book me the same day.
For instance, take hps group in Marlow. Lovely agency. Took me on for a couple of weeks, 3 years later they still use me regularly. This is a company that takes no prisoners when it comes to freelancers, so to be there that long, I’m doing a good job. Unfortunately they went bust in 2020, but my point still stands.
I have good relationships with all my agencies and have many people who work, or have worked there who are more than willing to vouch for me.
I’ve been around this industry a while. I’ve freelanced for several years, as well as own my own business. I’ve worked for several award-winning agencies as a freelancer, such as BWP Group, HPS Group, Direction Group, Brainstorm, Reply and TMA. While working for them I have done work for many different brands. O2, Marks and Spencer, Weight Watchers, Hive, The BBC, 3M, BMW, MINI, Rolls-Royce, Mazda, McLaren, Yonex, Sky and a few more too.
I work for a day rate of between £290 and £325 for a 7.5hr day. Any time over 7.5hrs is charged at a pro-rata rate in 15m increments. I am fully insured for public liability up to £2,000,000 and professional indemnity up to £1,000,000.
I am fluent in all major design packages.
