About This blog

Hi! My name is Eva and I am happy you are here.
I am an architect, enthusiastic about communication and graphic design. This blog is about my freelance experiences while working full-time.
By sharing my experiences,  I aim to help motivated people with multiple interests to develop their freelance business while staying relaxed and happy.

How did all this start?

By the begin of 2016, I was sure that I want to have my own business. At this point, I was working full-time at an architectural practice and quitting my job and getting started wasn’t an option for me. And it still isn’t. So I decided to take small steps in this direction in my spare time.

Approximately at the same time, I read Gretchen Rubin’s book “The Happiness Project”. I became highly motivated to start a blog, and I did start. Based on Gretchen’s monthly resolutions program I set up my resolutions for the first six months of my blog. You can see read more about those here. I gain my first client just a month after my blog was launched and a while later I set up my freelance company: Carta Nova – Studio for graphic and concept design.

The blog now

With this blog, I keep a record on various aspects of the freelance life while working full-time. Here you can find inspirations, support and ideas about freelancing, mindfulness working and even some knowledge about company legal stuff.
I don’t use any stock images here, and the sketches you see are my hand drawn. This is my favourite way to relax and de-stress, and because stress-free is one of the topics here, I decide to use them as post images.
Some of the images are available on the society6 website. If you like them you can see the products with my drawings here.

Get in touch!

Yours, Eva
