Its funny how some jobs land in your lap. I'm fortunate so far in not having to rely on advertising to bring work in. Most of my work comes from word of mouth referrals from existing clients and there is no better way to get work.
In the summer of 2018 I worked on signage for Blush hair studio in Fakenham. Through that job (and also being in the right place at the right time), I bumped into Richard from Fakenham Town Council. He explained a project the council wanted to undertake and apply for funding for and invited me to submit a proposal to 'facelift' 4 commercial buildings in Norwich Road.
Thankfully this job was awarded to me and took me on an interesting and challenging journey. Previously, I had worked for a sign and graphics company in Bury St Edmunds and this experience came in handy on this project. Coming up with colour schemes that were acceptable to the local District Council, the Town Council and also the proprietors was a process that worked well and (as far as I have heard) people seem happy with.
Have a look at these before and after images and let me know what you think!
