Which status is most advantageous? How do I set my prices? How do I find and canvass customers? How do I build a network? These are just some of the questions you might ask yourself if you want to start a freelance business, or if you've already been freelancing for several years.

Our three guests, Ariane Butto, freelance illustrator, Alice Des, freelance artist and former illustrators' agent, and Manon Taillefer, consultant, art director and coach to freelance entrepreneurs (and GOBELINS alumnus), took a look at all the issues that can arise when working as a freelance creative.
