Woah! You wanna know more about me? I’m flattered!
So yeah. I’m Harry! You guessed it – that’s a nice close up of me in the photo (I only look pretty in black and white btw.) When I started my journey into this digital world – I would probably have called myself a freelance graphic designer / animator. I initially started doing voluntary projects because I was ‘good with computers.‘ To start with I had little to know design knowledge or skills with any software but was keen to take on fun projects and as a result – got better and better. When I was offered my first paid project for an online rating company ‘irateislate’ I was totally taken aback. Someone actually offered to pay me for what I was doing!? Woah! Mind blown.
Since then I have taken on every project I could fit into my day in order to learn and practice new skills and ultimately know them off by hand and be able to put them into practice. As of 2018, I’ve now worked with over 350 different clients, contributed to some fantastic projects (thankfully all paid now!), met some really cool people and learnt some really great stuff along the way.
I’ve always got the ambition and end goal of working for myself, under my own terms, making the rules up as I go along – and I think that is the way for me. Which leads me onto my next point.
MAYBE MORE THAN JUST A FREELANCER NOW?
Currently, I am involved with the running of my own business – dab hand group. This is business registered on the advice of my father who suggested I could perhaps focus more on my skills and level up my freelancinglyness. Shortly after my 18th birthday I registered dab hand group and I’ve never looked back.
2019 brings many many more exciting opportunities for me that I hope to share successes of. This includes plans to begin running three more businesses – all of which I’m particularly excited about. Another major change is my relocation to Australia – which I hope will open up more business opportunities and chances to work on more cool projects!.
… and that’s it for now! The story continues I guess!
