Ever considered switching from being a full-timer to a freelancer (or vice versa) but couldn't reach a verdict? We know a little something that might help you with that.

Caisa Nilaseca has compared the pros and cons of being a freelancer vs full-time designer in 6 illustrations for DesignTaxi. From not having colleagues to talk to when at home to working anytime you want - the yays and nays vary. Take a look at her illustrations below, maybe they'll help you reach a decision.

Have you already tried both freelancing and working full-time? Do you agree with Caisa Nilaseca's illustrations?

I always took a shower at 6 am, it was like giving myself a CPR at that time of day...

I'm with Leon on this one - showering in the a.m. is a must to wake up!

Hm, why? When showering after sports in the afternoon or evening you usually can skip the morning shower. Unless the hairstyle demands it.

This might be true for freelance graphic designers, but it surely is not true gor many other freelancers. An ecample would be software developers who work at least on medium-sized projects.

Not true nowadays...as freelancer you still might be bound to a customer's preference. As employee you might have a flexible time-scheme
