Many newbie graphic designers have no idea what their revenue streams might look like, were they at least moderately successful. After all, who goes into graphic design thinking about that?
Fortunately, Ty Johnston, posting in Reddit as /u/tyunderscore, has given us one such example to look into.
Like many graphic designers, Ty Johnston works from his home, and does more than just freelance. He also operates an online store, and sells prints and digital templates.
In other words his experiences mirror that of so many other freelancers who find themselves relying on their craft to survive. There are a few interesting, logical aspects to Ty’s approach. He’s attempted to diversify his revenue streams so less of this income is derived from freelance work — which in term less of a reliance on scrounging for clients to survive. At least in theory.
Check out Ty’s breakdown of his revenue streams here.
