    I'd say the best way is to target certain companies and ring them offering your services.

    Ideally, get yourself a brief meeting with those companies to show them what you can offer.

    Do not be pushy
    Do not promise what you cannot produce
    Do take the first job they give you - even on a small budget ;)

    Good luck!

    I work in a museum as well as being a freelance designer and have picked up lots of briefs from the curators, so it might be worth contacting your local museum/art gallery. It's usually nice work too!

    What about TPS? How would I know if a company is registered with them or not. I'm a bit worried about where i'd stand calling up companies...

    "Under Government legislation introduced on 1st May 1999 and replaced on 11th December 2003 by the Privacy and Electronic Communications (EC Directive) Regulations 2003, it is unlawful to make unsolicited telesales/marketing calls to individuals who have expressed their wish not to receive such calls."
