Freelance Support Center

 Freelance assignments and project work can be the nucleus for a successful independent multimedia or graphic design career.

PTI pooled its internal resources – the experienced web designers, videographers, illustrators, graphic artists and photographers who comprise School of Design faculty – and established the Freelance Support Center - FSC.

Many of these instructors still enjoy the creative challenges of supplemental freelance work. They understand how to price a job, present a work agreement, track hours, record expenses, and build an invoice. They also know how to network, find work, and deadline work. This support is an invaluable resource offered to PTI School of Design students and graduates.
