Hi all, I am fairly new to the freelance game, having trained as an animator for 4 years and had relatively no success in finding work, i am now pursuing a change of direction as a graphic designer. I have posted on this forum a few times with questions and with opinions so i thought why not come to people with some experience with this latest problem. All of the work i get right now is through a contact i made through a friend. He runs a technology consultant company that offers digital solutions - web design, identity, print work, etc. I have been getting reasonably regular work for the past couple of months and i am enjoying the challenges presented to me. My problem is as i have no contact with the clients i have no idea what it is they really want, i feel as though the briefs he gives are diluted through him, and he himself admits not being a designer!!! To put it simply, is it a bad thing that i find it difficult to get momentum with a brief without asking a hat-ful of questions upon receipt of a new brief??? Or does this sound like an appropriate amount of detail to see me through; New logo required. . .they like that shape they have up the sortta house with the sun. .. . is there something we can do to make that look slick and professional?? Cart Blanche isnt always a good thing is it??? Please can someone with a little more experience help me approach this without "biting the hand that feeds me"!!!
