workin' 9 - 5 what a way to make a livin'

So ive gone and got myself a 'proper job' working in an office - albeit its a creative office - Garda Design, Billericay - They're great there!

Here's their website, but its being updated as we speak (infact ive been having a little dabble in designing it!..). INFACT Garda is going through a whole re-brand, which is great, because I get to see what goes into changing all the logos, letter heads, marketing materials etc...
Thats my seat there... the lovely empty one, nearest the left!

I've been up to London to meet a client UK P&I Club, which is part of Thomas Miller - a big shipping insurance firm in Fenchurch Street. Ha! I felt really grown up - 'A client meeting in London'. Basically they just had to proof read and sign off some pages of the rule book we've had printed, and actually today I spent most of the afternoon cutting up the 'Dummy'... (to make sure the pages collated)

As much as im enjoying it - its really taking it out of me! After 6 months idly popping into the studio when I wanted, i now have a 7am wake up! phew! catch a train by 8.26... be in work by 9 have to work all day til 5.30, then get the train, home by 6.30! eeeeek! and then its bedtime!! hahaha 'that's life ey!'

ah leave me alone - ive been in education since i was... what 4?! this is the first time in 20 years I haven't been allowed to go home at 3.30! its tough man! heheh

To be honest, its what i need. It wasnt that I was getting bored of ceramics, I was just feeling a little 'uncreative' or stuck in a rut so to speak. This'd usually happen over the summer holidays, but then I'd get back into the swing of things at Uni and i'd be fine! Its probably because i havent really got the time to do things i WANT to do em now!? hehe.. especially get those 'Whats up Dollface?" brooches out there!

just a quick reminder there for you!

AH well.... lets see how it goes, The guys at the office are great! I'm getting along well with them, banter has started already!

I'm really excited about the job and it's prospects so..

fingers crossed*

ooooh im getting my own email address soon too! its one of the things ive been most looking forward to! Ive been having to use an old employee's account. Ive been sending emails as 'Ian'! ha!
