Hi guys some advice please. I am currently employed as a Graphic Designer and am actively looking for freelance work as well. As my employers work us too the bone over recent years my time for other things (including building a portfolio) has been limited. Now things are quiet at the moment I thought I'd give myself a raise and promotion to senior designer in my own company LOL... To do this I have had to use some work that I have done for this company on my website etc which I am concerned about...should i be firstly?

Secondly becuase i was worried about being found out I decided to use an alias, basically my name but slightly changed (surname first and christian name second) so that once I'm out there If I get found they won't know its me (which has happened on Linkedin) Can you foresee any problems with clients etc calling me something different and writing checks etc. Could I on the invoice say please pay all checks to...

Any help/advice is appreciated!
