I got commissioned to create exhibition signage for a community project at the contact theatre. This was insightful as it gave me an idea about working in the real world and preparing files to send to an external printer. It was strange not having complete creative freedom, but was good practice working within such restrictive guidelines and still try to make something creative. I was pleased to find out that I would be paid for this work, making this my first ever paid graphic design job. I learnt a lot about how to prepare a document for printing, simple things which aren't relevant in a university envoronment, but are very important in the outside world.
