    I haven't updated my portfolio in a while, but here's an idea of some of the stuff I've done at university etc.
    Wondering if you could give me crits and comments on my work, let me know what you thing and whether or not this is a career I should be pursuing?

    I remember your work from a while ago. You would probably get more response if you posted individual pieces on for critique.
    From the comment it sounds like your have hit a confidence wall - probably every designer goes through that stage "Am I good enough" the answer to that question is: if you love doing what you do, keep doing it. practice,practice,practice and more importantly have fun.

    still doesn't mean you're any good.... trust me I've seen people while I was at uni who managed to somehow get on the course, yet they were nowhere near the level that was really required, let alone the top end of the spectrum. Yes it's harsh but lets be realistic here, design is probably one of the most over saturated courses compared to job placements and it's a 'buyers market' where they can pick the best for relative cheap cost.

    So show us the work here, we don't like having to go elsewhere, we're lazy like that, and we'll give you honest feedback and in my case I mean honest feedback. If your work is rubbish (in my opinion) I'll say it's rubbish because my view is that there's no point beating around the bush in design, it's just wasting time which could be spent on making a better design, hell I tell my clients that I would rather they tell me earlier rather than later if they don't like something, it saves both time and money (well sometimes lol).

    I was at a design conference last year and one of the speakers work was rubbish( in my opinion) but she started a very successful design agency in London winning company and personal awards. Someone will employ you for what you do - they might like your style. it's just having that belief and never quit attitude and you will succeed.

    a successful design agency.... was it just her or more than just her... she might just be a good sales person with a good team. Still doesn't get past the fact that it's bad design though, unfortunately a lot of people just don't see it as bad design because they don't know what good design is :(

    I like your work and did good commenting on your work. I have also a account on behance in which I have updated my all past projects and recent project.
    Please add some descriptions in your portfolio so that we can know in details about your work.

    Clever you. You seem to have a real talent for posters and logos. Specialisation in your chosen field will reap rewards. Thanks for sharing, your confidence is spot on
