Freelancer Interview: Pete Clark – Freelance web designer

Who are you? That should be an easy starter question right? But at the risk of getting too deep too quickly this is something I’ve given a great deal of thought to recently. About a year ago I realised I was maintaining different versions of ‘who I was’ for different groups of people. There was the web designer me, the me my friends saw down the pub, the me that made electronic music, the me that went on dates… Those are all part of who I am and those are all things I do, but I was keeping them separate and it meant that none of them was a true representation of who I truly am. I had this idea that to be successful in any area of life I had to curate myself but I’ve come to realise that it’s the exact opposite. Nobody’s interested in ‘perfect’. People like vulnerable, weird and honest.

Sorry… did you just mean what’s my name? It’s Pete. Hello.
