    People call you? I've freelanced for 16+ years and got maybe a handful of calls. I use email + skype for clients.

    Clients don't need to be able to get in touch 24/7 - there are no design emergencies. :)

      I naturally tend towards those options too, but a quick conversation can sometimes be the most effective way to communicate, I've unfortunately found.

      Do you work with local clients? Do you have business cards? What do you put on those?

        Zero local clients (I live in the woods on an island) and I've not had business cards in about 15 years. So nothing to put on those since they don't exist :)
