Freelance Designers on Twitter

Many freelance designers are getting work through twitter. In fact I just read an article about a guy i’ve been following called Jacob Cass. Jacob has an awesome blog called Just Creative Design and he really embraces social media, especially Twitter.

Just last week he finalised his new move to a brand new job, meaning he gets to move from Australia to New York. The job offer originated from a twitter direct message. You can read more here.

Anyway, all that to say that using Twitter is a good thing for freelance designers, and here’s a few to connect with:
