Portfolio

I'm at a stage with my work that I can begin to pick "favourites" to go into a portfolio of my "best work"... it's such a self indulgent activity but it's kinda cool to see how styles change over time. There's still so much I want to do and experiment with but here are some current favourites. Chances are, in a few years I'll hate all of them and in reality they are all actually pretty crap...





Actually, I'm already questioning a few of these but it's like 1am on a Saturday morning and I really should sleep. I can't wait to get some money so I can do stuff again!
I've made a proper set for my portfolio on my Flickr - here, it's probably a slightly better thought out selection!

Making a Website - Single Most Stressful Experience Of My Life


So, for those of you who unluckily have the utmost joy/burden of having to view my Tweets and monotonous Facebook updates, you may be aware that I had a group project to create a website for an online magazine. If the 349283493473x status updates and tweets didn't get my point across, then I will tell you now, it was really fucking hard. I had no previous knowledge of Web Design or Dreamweaver and I had somehow, amidst the stress of the final 3 weeks coming up to hand-in, put myself forward to make it. Why? I have no fucking idea.

Thankfully, my group we're rad, and we all worked so hard on the content so I really wanted to make sure that the site didn't look like a pile of shite. It's done now and although it's not live on a domain, i'm still pretty proud, but safe to say, I never want to make a website again. Ever.

Enjoy!

I've been home for just under a week and I've been doing a lot of trespassing/drinking, excited to get some rolls of films developed (when i'm not broke), there are some crazy good derelict buildings in my neck of the woods. I guess there are some perks to being a country bumpkin, but I'm really missing being in a creative environment. Roll on London!
