ABOUT THE SESSION

What does it take to be an independent lighting designer? Attendees will learn the important role of an independent designer, and what it takes to get the job done, how to stay current, get fun projects and keep away from the pitfalls. Love what you do without being overwhelmed.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
  • Getting Work: How do you find and attract projects? How do you keep the client happy? How do we compete with larger firms?
  • Finding the Right Help: Even an independent designer needs help. Who should you hire and who should you always keep available? Where do you find the help you need? Employees or 1099 People? Interns?
  • Staying on Top of the Game: What are the key elements required to stay relevant in lighting and design? How do we brainstorm when we don't have anyone to brainstorm with?
  • Rewards and Pitfalls: Love your work. Love your team, your clients, and the finished design. Learn from everyone, you are only in competition with yourself.
