OUGD602 Creative CV (Brief One)

For my CV, i thought I would be a bit different than to just create a nicely designed CV. I decided to create an A3 folded CV, which a really bright colour on the front with the text 'hey! you need to look at this!'. I decided to do this as I think it would make the receiver look longer at the CV, as I bet they get a lot of CVs a week and this would make mine stand out. It's a really bright colour on the outside the grab the receivers attention, however the inside is toned back to showcase my CV and a small portfolio. I thought it would be beneficial including a small glimpse of my portfolio along with my CV as it gives the receiver a better idea of what I'm capable of.

OUGD602 Email to Smiling Wolf (Brief Two)

My email to Smiling Wolf can be seen below.


My name is Amelia Bramwell and I’m a student from Warrington currently in my third year at Leeds College of Art studying graphic design. I came across Smiling Wolf when searching for studios more local to myself when I'm not at university and instantly fell in love! I particularly enjoy iDebate, it's so beautifully designed and consistent!
I was wondering if by any change you offer internships to students? I would absolutely love to get some experience in your design studio. 
You can check out some of my previous work here:
Thank you for your time, I hope to hear back from you soon!

OUGD602 Smiling Wolf (Brief Two)

Smiling Wolf is a design agency based in Liverpool that I happened to find on Twitter. Their projects are very similar to my own style; they use bold colours and is often print-based outcomes. They often use sans serif typefaces and it is clear that they enjoy minimal, clean design - very my own style.

I am going to email Smiling Wolf and see if they offer internships or studio visits, as this is a studio that the idea of working in really appeals to me.
