davidbracetty - How can I start producing higher quality work and marketing what I have right now?
thadcoxdesign - Producing higher quality work comes down to exposing yourself to new skills, the more you know, the better you get. Also learning from others more advanced that you. Reaching out to people you respect and admire and asking them to critique your work will speed up your development.
To market what you have, you need to first build your reputation within an industry. Niche down and by the guy within that niche - the icon guy, the logo guy, the lettering guy etc. Be known for that. When people think 'logos' they think of you. After that it's being targeted with who you approach for exposure, networking and collaborating.
