    Before I tell you who I am I must admit I stumbled upon these forums about a year ago and I think it wasn't until a friend linked them to me again a few weeks ago that I registered. All I can say is it was a shame I didn't pay more attention a year ago as this seems like a great place.

    I guess its customary to tell you a bit about who I am in an introduction or at least what I do and enjoy.

    My name is Ralph Saunders and I am a lazy student. I would like to describe myself as a person who is passionate about the creative arts but that would be a lie because I think fine art is a load of balls. More specifically I enjoy the print and web sides of design with particular interest in branding and the possibilities within the web.

    I am currently studying Graphic design, an ND, at SCAT (Somerset College of Arts and Technology) and have a part time job at a design company called Brighter Creative.

    You can follow my ramblings and mini rants, not that you would want to, at my twitter and can have a laugh at my tumblog [some nsfw content probably].

    I am currently working on a design blog called Creative Woot which is due to be launched sometime in the next couple of weeks and I am also working on my portfolio which should be around soon…[yeah, right].

    You can view some of the stuff I have done here however it is terrible and I wouldn't recommend it.

    I hope that introduced me enough, I am now off to design a Mr. Men avatar.. any suggestions of what would fit my personality?

    Thats odd. In both firefox and chrome (on windows) it opens a new tab and downloads a PDF.

    Thanks for the welcome guys :D

    Hi Ralph,

    I got a draw error message as well (IE7 on Windows) but the portfolio showed up fine afterwards. Some great work there.

    Welcome to the forum! :)

    Hi Ralph,

    Welcome to Design Forums!
    Good to hear you've heard of the site before and pleased to see you got a link to return a year on :)

    As for a Mr.Men avatar I think Onartis has already grabbed Mr.Lazy... will have a think for you!
