When I started working as a freelancer I had little experience of all the failures and rejections l would face later on in my career. My inexperience and initial phase of self doubt were the biggest obstacles faced by me. This was eventually curbed as I started working on smal design projects and started getting more bigger projects eventually but that happened after I made my share of mistakes and got to learn from them.
It was not an easy journey but learning is always fun.
So how did I utilize my experience and chanalized it in making my work more efficient. The key is not to give up and when your at your lowest thats when you have to pick yourself up and start all over again until you succeed.
First draft is the initial look of the project I present the client with and from here the discussion becomes more important because this will help you in underatsnding the direction of your work.
During the initial few projects I had kept an open mind towards the criticism and feedback I would get after the first draft. Through this process I learned the importance of asking questions. If you ask the right questions to your clients you will be able to give more knowlegde about the result they are looking for.
Never worry about the criticism which you will get from others. Try to focus on your work and bring out the best in you.
Even if a project fails to reach a definate conclusion. Use it as a learning experience. There is absolutely nothing which will go to waste. That same project might not be liked by one person but to someone else it can be the most interesting thing they might have seen.
Be creative. Take chances because you never know how things turn out.

There are certain traits which will always come in handy in your work whether you're a designer or in any other profession.Always have love and passion for the work you're doing because nothing can replace that from reflecting in you and the outcome of your work.Also there are some experiences and lessons I would love to share.
People will talk about your work and sometimes it good and sometimes its bad.Not every client will love your first draft or the final outcome irrespective of the fact that you kept awake all night completing it.If one person does not like your work may be other will,its always about difference of opinion and choices.I use to be sad after a certain client feedback or criticism from someone over my work thinking ' how the hell would they know,I have put so much effort'.But as I kept on working I realized that only take constructive criticism and develop a thick skin otherwise self doubt will cloud you.Also its just an opinion from others and that gives you a fresh perspective towards your work and as a result the outcome of your work will only improve.
2.Be true to your work:

I am biased towards COLOR
Colors are everywhere, it evokes reactions or feelings of association and each individual has a different way of reacting towards it, may be because of personal preference, lifestyle or due to cultural backgrounds.
Color theory is a very interesting subject and its a science in itself.It can influence our thought or ability to chose and is triggered by the effect we feel once we see a certain color.There are Primary (red, yellow and blue)., Secondary (green, orange and purple) and Tertiary Colors (created by mixing primary and secondary colors.) and on the color circle can further be divided into warm and cool colors and as we go further the color wheel we learn color harmonies. Why is it important to have all this information? we all know colors.It was a basic part of our curriculum in school.The color wheel is a tool that helps us talk about the physical phenomena of light and how we perceive it and how we ultimately implement it in designs and the combinations. Color harmonies teach us how to use the best combinations.
As a designer I have to use shapes, typo and colors but I am always attracted to colors the most. While browsing websites or reading magazines or brochures I have always felt that my attention is more towards the color usage.Over the years I have bookmarked several websites or kept print ads even books or C.D covers which have caught my attention.It has always been helpful for me to go back and check what color I can use while designing or making an illustration.
