Graphic Designer

Post by Markos »

Hello!
I´m a Finnish graphic designer (websites, brochures, magazines, etc) living currently in Manila.
I've been thinking to move to Cambodia. Is competition hard in this area, is it possible to make
living as a designer? All ideas (partnership e.g.) are welcomed :)

Why would anyone employ you over the many locals who’ll do it cheaper and speak the lingo?

His work may be far superior. Not all graphic artists are the same.

Do you think living and working in Manila he needed a lecture about adapting to local markets?

What do you do that makes your rhetorical questions so valuable?

At what, asking rhetorical probing questions or calling out a troll?

Most employers would rather save a few hundred bucks and have less quality. It's the Cambodian way.
