It’s been a while…
I’ve been super busy with uni, work, car racing and life in general.
Though I have designed a new logo for myself, and I am pretty proud of it.
I have it in a range of colours for any mood and I think that it suits me very well.
Here it is in black and one in orange.
As I’m starting out, working for no pay is fine in order to get my name out there, however as some people say ‘if you are good at something, never do it for free.’ Slowly but surely I am working out what I can do and I love experimenting with new and more exciting designs.
Getting out and being active on social media and on other sites leads into work and gives an opportunity to be known to others and network. Through twitter I’ve had Engineer Memes ask me to design a profile picture for their page. Things like this gives me a new experience that I can add to my list of work. I’ve also been designing logos on 99Designs, (profile here) and have learnt so many new things.
If you love what you do, it will never seem like work, and there is not much better than getting paid to do what you love.
“Even established designers looking to broaden or change their expertise may work for free from time-to-time. To me, there’s more dignity and two-way respect if a designer says to a potential client, “I’ve never done this before and I think I’d like to move into this area. I’ll do the job if you’re willing to take some risk on a good designer with no experience in this medium or category, and in exchange you don’t have to pay me.” – Blair Enns (source: http://www.davidairey.com/unpaid-internships/)

Some photos from racing on the weekend at Avalon. The airshow that is held next weekend meant we were able to see many planes, including a F22 Raptor and a F16 arriving at the airport while we were out racing, flying low and doing some amazing displays.
This was the first run that the Allsure Insurance Racing Team’s Toyota Celica Ra23 has done around the track, a test for the rally it is going to complete next week.
Here are a few shots from the weekend.

A dose of positivity, inspiration & motivation!
