Introducing Andrew Dormand - freelance graphic designer



Hi Andrew and welcome to Freelance Faces.
How did you start out as a freelancer?
Whilst at uni, a friend offered me the job of designing and building the set for a live caberet show in 'The Shift' - a club in Oxford St., Sydney. He was happy with the end result and I enjoyed the work. This one job began an eight year career in producing hand made advertising for clubs, pubs and some corporates including Red Bull and Lion Nathan. Although in the end the work became repetitive, so in 2002 I re-trained as a graphic designer at Enmore TAFE and began my new career and haven't looked back.

How long have you been freelancing?
As a qualified graphic designer - 6 years.

What do you like about being a freelancer?
I enjoy the variety of work and the freedom to create my own work/life balance. It means I can take my 4 year old son to swimming lessons !



What are your specialities?
I think each area of design brings it's own particular challenges whether it's print, packaging, branding or whatever. Finding a solution to the problem is what I enjoy the most - so perhaps that's my speciality. See samples - click here.

How do you usually source freelance work?
I have had quite a few enquiries come from the Freelance Factory actually - also repeat business which is the best and word of mouth.

How did you find out about the Freelance Factory?
I found out about the Freelance Factory through a friend who is also a member. Vlasia Antoniou. Vlasia is a copywriter and proofreader. Click here to see Vlasia's profile.

What do you think of the FF concept?
I think it's a brilliant idea. 

What other interests do you have?
I really enjoy playing my guitars and surfing but most of all I love spending my time with my wife and two boys, at the park, the beach or just hanging out at home.
