Aaaand another project completed recently, just a little poster design for Uni Xmas Party. Never made something into so many different formats as I had to make a double sided flyer, TV ad and a web ad from this poster so I’m sure it was all a useful learning curve!

Reckon I’m going to put all the experimenting on the backburner for now and concentrate on planning the actual look of the pages…. eek! but I think this will give me more of a foundation to play around with. Anyways here is my beautiful library and my not-so-beautiful layered image complete with schoolkids:
