Some pics from the Pub Quiz last week. Well done Rachel and team for all the hard work organising it. I managed to show my portfolio to D2 Digital and Arena Creative
Brilliant night at WE MADE A PUB QUIZ. Excellent atmosphere to speak to industry and show portfolios. Had some great positive feedback on my portfolio, so I was really chuffed.
To top it all our team the ‘Cobrian’s’ won the Pub Quiz!!! Go Cobrians…..
These pictures are great Megan! This was our team at the pub quiz (WE WON!!) What a great night it was mixing with industry and getting tips and tricks for job hunting and portfolio displays. Included in our team where industry professionals ‘Rocknine Creative’. They were a small business team of 2 with one employed worker, they were lovely people. It makes you realise that industry professionals are not scary people and generally are there to help. I got great advice and comments on my design work and especially on my Earlybird typeface. The main pointers that i made to the industry where that i need to broaden my portfolio to all formats as currently it is very type orientated. I realise that it is very hard to get a job just as a typographer, so i need to also find other things in graphics that i like just as much. Another question i asked was that applying for jobs before you have graduated is difficult as what do you put for you degree qualification, the answer was lie!! What a great night it was al round!

Delivering Goody Bags.
Me and George teamed up armed with goodie bags to take to Industry today, we had quite a long list and found out they were all over town, trusty Google Maps got us every where today, we did a bit of going round in circles and some backtracking but in the end we visited :

I’ve been updating our pub quiz microsite today. Adding logos, updating the twitter feed, embedding customised Eventbrite box. All we need now is images for the banner slideshow. Tickets available from 1st March.
I’ve also added some tweets to our account @madeinsalford
Just putting together a 1 page microsite for our Pub Quiz DNA event. Using a few placeholder images at the moment. Watch this space
We made a badge x 100+
Thanks to Megan, George, Nathan and Jemma for helping create all of these badges today!
Also I finalised the sticker design which proved awkward with our chosen font due to the k looking like a H!
So now pretty much everything is finished and ready to print :) just have to purchase the sticker paper, get hold of some good quality card, buy some bags for everything to be put in and buy peanuts and cellophane bags.
Also I have collected another £100 of show money today which takes us to £1220 with some still left to pay.
Spent today working on finalising designs for the Pub Quiz event, with Rachel and George.
The invitation, beer mat, badges, beer tokens have all finished ready to print/make when we have paper.
The next step is ordering all of the things to make the packs and to begin making.
Pub quiz team are in today making badges, finalising print layouts and designing the page for the website. Next step is to order all the things for the packs and paper or printing too.
