Interview with Cal Media

Examiner: What kind of design do you specialize in?

Cal Media: Any type of graphic design. I don't limit myself to a specific type like a stylist probably shouldn't limit themselves to hairstyles.

E: Do you work for a company? Do you freelance?

C: Freelance. With a company, you may get more jobs, but they also take most of the pay.

E: Where do you find clients (if you freelance)? Do they find you? How?

C: Everywhere. Just like with anything, you have to be smart. Use your brain, advertise, promote, etc. Leave fliers everywhere, stickers, posters, word of mouth, classifieds.
You can sell anything as long as you promote it enough.

E: What programs do you prefer to use when designing?

C: I prefer Photoshop, Illustrator. Photoshop is for photos and Illustrator is for vector. I sometimes have to use a combination.

E: Where can people see your work?

C: Calmediaonline.com has some of my work.

E: Do you enjoy your job?

C: Yes, I definitely enjoy my job. Mostly because I'm my own boss. I do work a 9-5 and there is too much politics. When you are your own boss, you call the shots. That is one of two of the websites that I have. I'm working on two more to make four totally.
