You've got to sell yourself!
Tart card for a graphic designer. I can honestly say I've never laughed so much whilst making a piece of work. I'm not sure what that says about me, and if it's good or not, but either way I had so much fun with it "Create a business card for yourself  as a...

Celebrity tweets
I decided to make use of my Twitter addiction and made a series of magazine spreads featuring celebrity tweets (I use the term "celebrity" loosely for Katie Hopkins though) I had a lot of fun with these, and tried something new with the style of imagery and...
