Just Go And Do It!

Trying to find that perfect design placement, internship or career boost is really difficult. Since my redundancy I have been searching, interviewed and coming so close yet no cigar for months now.

Every piece of feedback has been useful and given me the confidence to keep going. The latest from Something Big, to practice my skills to get faster and better as well as to have more ‘image & text’ based designs in my portfolio. Also to not give up. This was the most valuable and helpful piece of advice I have received so far. It’s made me realise where I can improve.

(The trouble is just getting round to doing it.)

A new venture has also started, it’s just getting on to it’s feet; this venture is called ‘Off The Grid, Design & Marketing’. A group of designers and freelancers available to take on any brief! I have been a part of the branding and naming of the group, which was really enjoyable. It gave me something to do, as well as to collaborate with one of my friends whose been in the industry for 20 + years.

I’m hoping it works out!

UPDATES!

Since my last poster designs, I have had two interviews and one I’m currently waiting to see if I have been successful or not.

My fingers and toes are crossed, I’m anxious and well, excited to know.

BUT

Working as a supervisor has been interesting and I am actually enjoying this new position, but it is tiring which is why I haven’t had much room for any recent designs apart from one amazing project, which has just finished.

I’ve been designing wedding invitations for my Uncle and Aunty to be, I’ve seen a photo of the invites, printed in all their glory and I can’t be more proud of the achievement and helping craft their special day next year. I’m not going to reveal the designs just yet, other wise a lot of people will loose out on this spectacular surprise!

So for now, I’m planning my next design spectacle (well…. trying to think of ideas…).
