Creative Enterprise module on UWE Graphic Design BA(Hons) course

I'm currently in my final year of my BA(Hons) in Graphic Design at the University of the West of England, Bristol (UWE). As one of the options for this year I was able to enroll on a Creative Enterprise module. As I was already looking at working towards freelance design and had completed work experience with Bristol based freelance designer Tom Lane earlier on this year; creative enterprise seemed like the perfect module to pursue my interest in graphic design business.

As part of the course we are asked to keep a blog as a reference for all of our research, notes, inspiration and ideas throughout the course. Although this may seem like the most interesting blog, I am aiming to make mine into a useful resource for other entrepreneurial creatives.

There are some great links up there to talks by people such as Simon Sinek (found on website powered by Behance) and Scott Stratten, pioneer of UnMarketing also well worth a look at.
 Please check out the site following the link below and get in touch if there is any content you would like to see more of on the site or and case studies/information which would be useful!

The aim of this site is for it to be a useful resource so any feedback regarding its content is very useful. It is also aimed at accompanying my course so will follow my module as I go through.

Saturday, 8 October 2011 new website being build for Party Starting company in Bristol

I'm currently working on a website design and build project for a client in Bristol.
It is a really interesting brief because it's for a new company which offers a mobile disco service. If you're a bit confused like I was when I was first approached about this project; a mobile disco company offers music, lighting, set up and photography services to anyone looking to hold a party of some description.
This can include putting a night on in a bar, pub, club or other venue as well as disco's, weddings, stag or hen do's, graduations, a level exam results and all other reasons to party!

The website is viewable at where you can find all the information you need regarding the packages they offer. As the site is still under construction it will be about a week untill all the information is available but there's is contact information and the basics visible now.
As well as pre-built packages they also offer the option for add-ons with a huge range of sound and lighting equipment available.
