Self Promotion

As part of my degree show we have to design a 'visual CV' and a postcard to help promote both our work and ourselves. The postcard is meant to be used as a way to visually represent yourself or your design skills. However i decided to use it to promote this blog.

The above image is a Jpeg of the design i finally chose. I originally was going to cut out my face and just right the title of my blog on my face but my tutor thought it was better to show my face, even though i was slightly embarrassed as I'm not giving the most sophisticated pose, but i suppose that shows my not so sophisticated side, and hopefully my sophisticated side will be apparent in my work on display. The colours have changed slightly on the upload but you get the idea!

I am looking forward to my degree show as i love being around creative people. I just got back from one of the events that two girls on my course organised; Slash/Slash which i really enjoyed as there was live screen printing and illustration and i got a chance to see how other people promote themselves and took a few business cards away with for inspiration.

I think it is important to attend events that promote creativity as even though i do walk out feeling a bit deflated that I'm not as creative as some people it does motivate me to try and improve on what i can already do!
Let me know what you think of my postcard, it's not a design classic or anything but just be interesting to see what you think.
