I met Rita Lima eight years ago when we both enrolled for the first time in University. Rita realized she wants to be a designer without studying design, and she did it.
I decided to interview her so she could share her vision on what it takes to have a career in design and be a self-made designer.
Almost two years ago, Melted was just being born, and I wanted my first post to be about what it meant to be a professional designer.
In all truth, I’m still the same self-taught designer that I was back then, except, that now I have professional experience and a new perspective.
Somehow, the greatest clients always seem to encounter jerky designers, and good freelancers struggle with clients who want to pay 9 euros for a logo with unlimited revisions.
Because of this miss-match, I decided to help potential clients identifying a good freelancer.
