INTRODUCING Rebecca Murr
Freelance graphic designer.
FF: Hi Rebecca and welcome to Freelance Faces. How did you start out as a freelancer?
Rebecca: After graduating from university and working for a few agencies, I decided to start running my own freelance company at the age of 21. I've been freelancing for 15 years now.
What do you specialise in?
Corporate and Retail. Branding, print and multimedia. I also specialise in the music industry with different genres of music. Clients include Carl Barron, Ted Mulray, The Atlantics, The Country Music Industry and I've also worked with the Sony Music label.
How does freelancing affect your lifestyle?
I can make my hours of work flexible to suit my lifestyle. I can work from my home office or I can go into a client's office if that's what they require.
I like the different variety of work I receive and the flexibility of work hours. Working with small business as well as blue chip clientele. Clients I have done work for include: Westfield, Swaab Attorneys, Cockle Bay Wharf, Sydney Central Plaza and hundreds more!
What has been your career highlights?
2 year contract for Packaging Design - Zantac.
What other interests do you have?
I love scuba diving and travelling to remote parts of the world to dive. I am an animal and human rights activist also.
Where do you usually source freelance work?
A lot of my work has been word of mouth because I have been running for 15 years now. I also advertise in my local area as well as on the web. I advertise in music directories such as Country Music Festival and Directory and the Australian Music Industry Directory, Yellow and White Pages online and printed book. B & T magazine. Oh and of course The Freelance Factory!
How did you find out about the Freelance Factory and what do you think of the concept?
I found out about FF through a friend. I think the concept is a great idea and it doesn't cost much per month to be registered with you guys either.
FF: Thanks for your time Rebecca!
It's great to have you on board.
