I'm a UI/UX designer with a master's degree soon. Currently I see two options: Either start working in a company again (I have working experience already) or do my own thing which would be freelancing. For the freelancing part: Is it equal to opening my own design studio (still home office and no coworkers)?
What do you think is the better option? I don't have much to lose yet so my guess is that freelancing would make more sense. I've also well known on platforms such as Dribbble (where UI designer show off their work) and I get asked if I'm available as freelancer about once a week. In addition, I could always work on side projects, building my own products and try to get it popular (= my dream of getting rich).

I really don't like being a wageslave, sitting on my ass 8 hours, having my boss looking at my screen all the time and commuting in traffic or full train.

Anyone with experience? Advices? I'm happy about any input. Thanks!

>pic somehow related. I spend lots of time visiting my friends in Japan (where I worked before) and I imagine it's very comfy to go there for a couple of months a year and work on my laptop sitting in a coffee shop in Kyoto

Any advice for a guy about to go to college who's interested in UI/UX?

It's much safer than studying something like graphic- or industrial design. Learn how to make good interfaces while studying. 80% of UI designer can't do shit and if you are one of the 20% then you get lots of job offerings.

Don't "work" in a fucking coffee shop please. It's
1- unsafe in terms of web security
2- distracting
3- unprofessional

You can share open office spaces for like $5-10 a day.
1- free internet, coffee, water, restroom, AC etc.
2- free lunches everynow and then
3- collab with others, network
4- looking professional

I am in the same boat as you. What you said don't work anymore for peoples who want to make money, this was 20 years ago. Now IT is full of monkeys from Asia who literally work for nothing.
