Standing to attention

Networking is so much easier when part of your portfolio is standing spotlit in the corner of the room. More often than not I encounter confused looks when I say I'm a graphic designer and I design for print. Not today though. I was able to point to the banner in the corner and say I did that! That's the sort of thing I'm talking about.

I don't very often get in front of the camera but here I am beside the banner stand with my client, Helen Warburton(left).

The bright splash of green across the middle means the banner will stand out in any room and be a very clear voice for Creation Social Media wherever they go.

It's the social media site that everyone's talking about and the place to be if you're creative. For those of you not in the know, it's a site where you can gather images/ideas together from all over the web onto virtual mood boards.

Visit at your own risk as you may lose many hours scrolling through all the pretty things. A veritable endless magazine to be flicked through. For me it's a great tool for staying creative.

My only hesitation in using it for client work is that all my boards are public and design for a client seems like a more private process. There are a few alternatives out there but I've not found any with the wealth of great images/ideas that there are on pinterest.

So you can check out all the stuff I'm interested in over at pinterest and you'll not see anything you shouldn't at juxtapost.
