    Setting up a creative business is easy.
    I don’t think there is a need for government help doing that. Where all designers need help is getting clients and work, particularly SMEs who are not currently using design. I’d be interested in a scheme that supports new projects – perhaps with some repayment linked to the success of that engagement.
