I Have Landed...

I can honestly say these past three weeks since coming back to Sydney, Australia has been a roller coaster ride for me personally. Having been away on holidays for so long, I found it difficult to settle back into things, namely finding the right sort of work for me. About 3 weeks ago I worked for a day with RGC Advertising as a freelance Graphic Designer but found out it wasn't for me and then just yesterday I finished up working as a graphic designer for Strategic Campaign Associates after only three weeks. I felt terrible giving notice after only 3 days of work particularly since I had accepted the commitment as a full time employee. However, the company were really nice considering the circumstances as I continued to work for another two weeks. My colleagues were really nice to work with, but due to another job offer coming round, much closer to home with a good grounding for career development, I decided to take the move to Xavier Communications as a Finished Artist.
I genuinely enjoyed working with Strategic and even though I was only there for a period of 3 weeks I met some great people and helped to get some important client deadlines out of the way. I wish them all the best for the future and thank them for giving me the opportunity to work with them.
So today I have landed firmly on the ground and started my position as a Finished Artist at Xavier Communications which I enjoyed very much. I did some clipping path work to photos first up and then finished the day off by updating a flash-based newsletter for one of their clients which I will continue tomorrow. I'm really focused on moving into multi-media and animation a lot more so it's great that I can utilise these skills a lot more here.
I'm happy to say that I've landed and don't intend on leaving anytime soon.
