How-to guides for creative people


In my work as Creative Content Director for The Creative Independent, I’ve been developing a series of practical guides aimed at demystifying some of the more opaque processes and obstacles encountered by creative people. Each guide is written by a subject expert and edited by me, and aims to collect their hard-won wisdom in an easy-to-digest format so that others can learn from their knowledge and experience. It has been incredibly rewarding to curate and produce these guides, and to commission custom illustrations for each one. If you have an idea for a guide you’d find useful (or if you yourself would be interested in writing a guide!), feel free to shoot me an email: willa [at] thecreativeindependent [dot] com.
