It has been ages since i wrote my last blog post. Mainly because I had to write so much stuff for Uni that I got tired of it. But that was over a year ago. Since then I graduated University, landed my first major client ( Infinity/ Red Bull Racing/ Formula 1 ), so things have been crazy busy,
That project was completed a few months ago so started working on a new portfolio, piece for Deskopography and a piece for Artjunks. Finished all the work, unfortunately the Desktopography piece didn't make the final showcase but no worries.
Things have been great for me in the industry so far and a client like F1 this early is still unbelievable! I am so greatful to the art directors that found my work and included me in the project.
I am facing a dilema at the moment though. I am seriously thinking of searching for fully time opportunities in the design industry mainly for the connections and insane experience someone gains from working at an agency full time. But then with freelance I get to work on some really exciting projects relative to my style.
My main fear at the moment is the future! I need to contact as many agencies and inspiration websites to get my work out there and get connected. I would love to find an agency to represent me and help me contact clients, project manage me etc etc etc. But on the other hand I miss the effort that a full time job requires. The chance to meet new people, engage with fellow creatives for feedback , the friday after work drinks, all these things in general.
I really don't want to be a one trick pony kind of designer! But I do want to be known for my style without my style being to confined. But i guess only time will tell.
Last few weeks haven't been that easy mainly due to work stress and the fear of no clients and inability to imagine and create. Having a brief and basic guidelines makes everything so much easier but i think the true skill comes from a designers imagination. However this 2 week long break has put things back into perspective and my brain is going mental with ideas again so its all good!
Anyway started working on new exciting art project with all the money going to charity so things are getting busier again!
Wish me luck and will keep you posted with new work, new clients etc etc etc.
Thanks for all the support so far,
