My last post was just over 3 months ago, as I was about to embark on a new adventure in to graphic design. (I know I said i'd post work and progress etc, I just didn't have time, when they said the course was intense they weren't lying)
I have now finished my course at Shillington college, and I loved every minute of it (well apart from portfolio time - the most stressful part of the course). We learned so much in such a short space of time. It's hard to think back to the beginning where we worked on small adverts in black and white, all the way to the end where we were creating full campaign events.
I met so many great people, became much more confident in the Adobe software, learned all about design principles, typography, typesetting, creating gifs, concepts, mood boarding and ideas generation.
There is still so much to learn, but I feel like I now have a strong background to get a job and learn more. My plan is to work in graphic design/illustration for a few years while I build up a portfolio of clients, and a body of work, to go back to running my own business.
I will hopefully be adding items to my shops again soon and start it up slowly, i'd love to start doing markets and fairs again next year.
In the mean time I am on the look out for a job and planning a wedding, ill keep you updated.
