Friends, Hello everyone, this is Praneeth from graphic design how-to and today I’m going to talk about 5 mistakes or bad habits that graphic designers should avoid. I’ve seen other graphic designers make these mistakes but I’ve also made them myself at some point in my career. As a full-time employee, the people who work there, especially the upper management, want to know that you’re 100 percent committed to their company’s goals and that you’re 100% committed to your freelance clients.
