Once you have found pro bono graphic website design work, you need to
treat it just as you would any other freelance graphic website design
assignment or project. That means you have to find out what the client
wants in their graphic design website. Create a creative brief so that
you and the client are on the same page with where you are going with
their graphic website design project. You also need to set up a work
schedule and time line for the client so that an expected completion date
can be given to the client for completion of the graphic design website.

Once the pro bono graphic website design project is completed, follow up
with the organization to make sure that they are happy with their graphic
design website. Then, keep in touch with the organization in the future.

freelance projects in the future with paying clients. It will also open
up possibilities for more pro bono graphic website design freelance
projects for that and other charitable organizations.

fulfilling, rewarding way to gain additional experience, graphic website
design samples for the beginning graphic artists portfolio, and tax
breaks for the freelancing graphic website designer.
