Last week, I was delighted to find out that I had been featured as a recommended creative freelancer in the latest issue of The Drum.
A little background
The Drum is a leading industry magazine and all the agencies that I’ve worked for subscribe to it – if anything just to see which agencies beat them to a particular pitch. The Drum emailed me a few months ago to say I would be featured but, unfortunately, the publication date kept getting pushed back. Thankfully, last week at long last, the guide came out with the 23rd July issue.
Along with the listing, the guide featured some of the freelancers answering questions about freelancing. The answers were really interesting and I got a lot out of reading the responses of fellow freelancers to the same questions I had been asked.
It’s also important not to let things like this go to my head. There are lots of talented freelancers, who aren’t featured in this guide and I can’t honestly say this guide is the most accurate listing if I’ve been featured and they haven’t.
Having said that, it is always nice when a bit of recognition is thrown your way – whether you feel worthy of it or not.
