Where have I been? and Where am I now? / by Hassan Reda

Hello! Today I launch my new site to you guys! WOOO!  

I won't lie this is exciting for me, even thought I'm very nervous as well. It's been a few years since I've had a solid online presence, a space where I can properly market myself. 

Believe it or not I've made multiple portfolio sites that I've never shared online. Every time I got close to finishing one, I didn't feel that it gave me the representation that I was really striking for. I believe the biggest struggle as a designer is to design for yourself. At least for me it can be.

I also obtained a few full time positions in and out of the design field that were using most of time. This is when I decided that I wanted to start investing in myself instead of "Full Time Positions" for at least at this stage of my life. I always knew that I found working as a freelancer a much more rewarding experience than a 9-5 job.

A month and a bit after some major life decisions, I've decided to become that freelance that I've always wanted to be. It started with a logo re-design and branding, I knew it was a brand that I simply out grew and from then on it snowballed from there.I Picked the right tools that I know will work for me and my clients, I set goals and I set new standards for myself and now it's time to share it all with you. 

As I've said before I'm extremely nervous, please understand that this site will always be a work in progress and I will always work on improving it.

Got suggestions? I'd love to hear them!
