    I got 80% of inbound inquiries from my dribbble portfolio, and would receive anywhere from 2-6 a week. I tend to gravitate towards larger projects (1-3 months full-time or an entire design/redesign). I also think being in NYC helped as there is very high demand here for design.

    In my one year of freelancing, I have never taken a gig from a recruiter. Not saying that's the way to go, but my experiences with them have been subpar.

    I have a development "partner" (fancy word for friend) that I usually work with on projects if there needs to be any coding done, but I have typically plugged into startups as strictly UX/UI and work with their on-staff devs.
