Seeking advice on how to grow a logo/web/graphic design business

As a freelance graphic designer, I've been using a lot of creative marketing strategies to bring me in more than enough design related work month after month to the point where I find myself constantly giving overflow work to fellow designer friends and former work colleagues for years now.

I offer a large range of design related services but my three most common requests are logos, websites and general graphic design (apparel, marketing material, business cards, stationery, etc.).

With that being said, I hardly market my services and only take on enough projects to live comfortably without getting burnt out and overworking myself. However, I believe if I was to market myself more I would be able to find twice as many clients, I just wouldn't be able to take on the additional workload.

Because of this, I've been playing around with the idea of hiring a graphic designer or two as private contractors who I could train and eventually feed work too. Ideally, I'd like to market their services as well and expand from 1 design studio website to 3 design studio websites so I can find more clients and allow them to handle more of the design related projects while I generate leads and talk to clients. Over time each designer will have a list of return and referral clients as I do making the lead generating process somewhat easier as time moves on.

Heres the kicker; A good friend and graphic design colleague of mine who owns a spacious tattoo studio and storefront reached out to me this week and discussed the idea of bringing in "apprentice graphic designers" to work in his tattoo studio with us and help take on the large workload him and I currently have, which will be growing dramatically after I implement more marketing and build out more sites.

The numbers: I usually create around 5-6 logo, graphics, and web design projects a week with the average price being $400-$500 for logos, some marketing material ranging from $250-$800 every now and then (projects completed same day), and the occasional $1200-$1500 WIX or Squarespace based website project (2-3 day job). I plan on having each designer produce around 3 logos a week while occasionally doing websites and general graphic design projects but eventually move up to 5-6 a week once they're more comfortable and at a better work pace. I haven't discussed payscale with my colleague yet but he wants to pay the designers 50%-50%.

What are your thoughts and what would you do?

Small Start-up - need advice

I recently started a company with two friends (equity split 3 ways) and we just confirmed 250k in seed funding. We are trying to figure out how to set up the company and pay ourselves out of this 250k without incurring too heavy of a tax burden. Anyone have advice on how to structure the company (LLC vs S Corp) or any other advice while we begin organizing everything?

What is the general position of UAE to the degree business?

The UAE Business condition is arranged as a boss among the most incredible in the whole GCC area. UAE is arranged at 26th before other GCC countries like Saudi (49th) (I). In confirmations, UAE is before European countries as well. Netherlands positions at 27th, France and Turkey are at 31st and 55th. This says a lot with respect to the colossal conditions for coordinating in the UAE.

Can I apply for a work visa myself?

No, you can't do that all alone. Business and residency in Dubai work inside an arrangement of sponsorship. A business is the proper party to apply for a work and residency visa for representatives. This implies you must have been contracted before the application for your work visa.
