I want to create a pack that I can send out to studios and designers so that I can try and get placements or a job in the future. I think that the pack would include a letter head, envelope, creative CV, mini portfolio and a business card. I want to keep the pack simple, and the right scale so that they can fit through letter boxes. Although I think this would be a good idea, I think I would only use it on certain studios as each studio will react to different things. For example if I were trying to get a placement at imeus with Anthony Peters, I would send a pack with a screen printed poster in it rather than everything else, and a business card of corse.
A CV is very important thing to send in a promotional pack, and I want it to reflect my personality and the design I am interested in.
I will need an invoice, although if I was mailing this out to studios I wouldn't be including an invoice in the pack with prices on as I think that that is a bit forward. For the design of my invoices I just used the same layout as my letter head and creative CV, then researched what invoices would look like to find out the information I needed to include on it.

Final Self Branding Pack.
|All A4 Letters|
When I printed my self branding pack I really didn't like it and thought that the colours were too much, although after putting the pack together, I think that it works well. The pink ninja is something that is light hearted just like I am, not to serious and quite fun. Pink is a colour I love, it is also quite a vibrant colour which means that it will be noticed and will stick in peoples heads. I think as I develop as a designer I want to pick up the name, 'The Pink Ninja' but as of right now I don't think that I can pull it off, or have the portfolio to back it. This is something that I can hopefully achieve by the third year.
In respect to sending out my promotional pack, I don't think I will actually send it out this summer unless I amend it. Because of the time limit I rushed it a bit and I don't think it's my best work. I also think that it might not always be appropriate to send this pack as different studios will react to different things. I think each studio, depending on what kind of studio and how much I want it, will have their own personal touch. If I were to do this brief again I would have tried to produce something that the studios would want to keep, use and interact with.
