SPECIAL EPISODE: Nine Years of Article and Design

⭐ This is not a podcast episode but a special episode. 🙂

Today, November 05, 2021, is our 9th founding Anniversary. One of the many crazy ideas I had came to life.

When I started freelancing back in 2011, I knew I was taking a huge risk in life and my career. After nine years, here I am, with Article and Design under my belt.

Yes, Article and Design (as a digital marketing business) has been in the digital industry for nine years. Hooray! Article and Design is not only a digital marketing business; it is also a learning hub for Filipino freelancers and business owners.

When the pandemic started in 2020, my former business partner and I planned to produce a podcast for Filipinos who wanted to freelance or create their businesses. The goal is to help Filipinos find work online since they got laid off due to the pandemic. And this was our response to the call: Article and Design podcast (formerly known as the Superfreelancers podcast). And then…I thought it must be possible to offer lessons (or an even better) “guide” about building a premium freelancer career for a cheaper cost. No upsells, subscription costs and hidden gimmicks—pure lessons, No BS, No fluff and backed by over nine years of experience. I decided it was time that freelancing courses would be designed for Filipino freelancers by a Filipino freelancer whose intention is not to make a profit out of your “innocence” in freelancing but a mission to change the game of how Filipinos are perceived globally. I vowed only to create lessons made by practitioners who worked as freelancers, not those who made money selling you the “idea” of freelancing. Thus the birth of the Article and Design courses. I wanted to share the “systems” in marketing yourself as a professional Filipino freelancer and build your premium career. Article and Design’s heartbeat is on a #1MillionMission. The mission is to transform 1 Million Filipinos to become #SUPERFREELANCERS. Our dream is to create a thriving community that is diverse, accessible, equitable, and inclusive. Fast forward to today; here we are, strong and growing. How time flies when you are having fun, right? Today marks the 9th Anniversary of Article and Design, and I am so thankful that we are here. I created this quick backstory video that may inspire every Filipino freelancer or business owner here. If I gave up nine years ago, I wouldn’t be where I am today. Thank you, everyone, for joining me in this mission. I owe everything to you. Your win is Article and Design’s win. If you want to change the game with us, we welcome you to hang your hat!
