Self Promotion

One of my projects this year for Uni is self promotion... this begins with designing a logo. After probably around a weeks worth of hours spent on photoshop, researching logo's, bugging anyone and everyone about my designs and what they think about them and whether they represent me i have FINALLY created MY logo.

Obviously MJG are my initials- Megan Joanne Grant. The font represents organisation, efficiency with a streak of playfulness, creativity and it's slightly cheeky. (like me) The colours are chosen because to look at im quite clean, i wear a lot of black and white, but it's not boring, hence the pink, it's a burst of colour showing the exciting side to my clothing but also my bright bubbly personality.

Now i just need to find a way to apply it to this blog...... ♥

What a wonderful world...

It would be if everything was as amazing as Tim Walkers work. It makes me smile even on the dullest of days.

The irony, intelligence and fairytale qualities amaze me everytime.

Today these images really made me smile.

This is exactly where my thought process over the past few days has led me to:

Birmingham Clothes Show ♥

So again I was very lucky to get the opportunity to work for 1927 on their Juicy Couture stand at Birmingham Clothes Show Live 2009. Due to a massive pile of University deadlines I only worked for 4 out of the 7 days however what a brilliant 4 days they were!! Hard work, long hours, scary customers but somehow the buzz, the atmosphere, the fashion makes it all worthwhile.

Probably the hardest work i've ever done, fighting my way through velour hungry crowds in order to pick up and rehang the mountain of undesired goods.

It was a good experience, we arrived at the stand on the Thursday which was literally a pink wooden frame with shelves and hanging rails, our job? Make it look appealing, sell the clothes as people walk in, make it desirable.

Unfortunately my camera broke 2 days before and therefore I couldn't get any images of the visual merchandising work we did... however in order to not keep this post so boring i'll give you a general clothes show image ♥
