Hi Guys,

I am currently writing a dissertation concerning Graphic Design in Advertising aimed at Children. It is for my honors degree in multimedia. As part of my research, I have constructed a questionnaire aimed specifically at Graphic Designers. I would be very grateful if you could take 3 minutes of your time to fill it out. It would be extremely useful to my work.

If you could send your answers as soon as possible via private mail to: j.johnston94@yahoo.com, that would be great.

Below is the questionnaire.

I look foward to hearing your opinions.

Many thanks,
Jamie.
