    Hats off to you Dave!

    My wife's a TA and spent just six months working with a kid one to one (undiagnosed behavioural problems) and it came close to breaking her.
    I couldn't do it but I have utmost respect for those that do.

    I've come across a few clients with "undiagnosed behavioural problems" so you'll be right at home mate. ;)

    I'm a designer specialising in event and nightlife industry design. The daily challenge is diverse, I have lots of loyal clients and someone somewhere is always putting on an event, so business is always there. Does anyone else on here design specifically for this industry. Would be great to share work and ideas.

    I started out doing that.

    I used to design for a few Sheffield music venues back in the day.
    I maybe getting back into it as a designer/muso friend is setting up an agency.

    Got any examples of your work? I've just started up an agency in Oxford specialising in this and it would be good to have someone to outsource to during busy periods (Christmas is one of them!)

    LOL! Sadly (very sadly) not.

    The posters I used to do were screen printed (2-3 col).
    I used to have a folio full of them which went walkabout.

    Pity, because there were some early ones from The Leadmill done for some bands which I hear got fairly well know like Pulp and the Manic Street Preachers.

    I am working full time for a software developing company in Bristol, as a web designer with the occasional scrap of print work thrown at me. But to keep me sane I am freelancing for a variety of small and bigger companies :)

    I'm just starting my own business. Around here there is not a lot of people that do graphic design and web development. I have always loved art and computers. I figured this would be a perfect match for me to get into. My company is also going to be making custom design wood working projects. To get things started. I have been doing construction for the last 12 years so I'm good with woodworking and making things from nothing. I got my first job the other day making a new logo for a local company here in town. Wish me luck everyone.
