The Sharp Project is located in Manchester. There are numerous studios within the building in small shed like areas. There is also a big open space in the centre that a lot of freelance designers hire out to work there. I went along with my boyfriend the other day, as he works with quite a few of the various companies. It was great to see such a different space and I was fortunate enough to have a tour whilst I was there which was brilliant.

Ellen and I went to a talk by Ben Casey, the founder of The Chase agency in Manchester. The talk was very inspirational and we came away feeling really pleased that we had managed to go.
We also went to an Adidas exhibition afterwards which was good fun too.

One of my friends who I went to school with now works for Hallmark which is in the same building as Tigerprint. When I told her that I have submitted designs to Tigerprint before for competitions she was really interested to hear how I had got on. She has seen some of my recent work and said that she could really imagine me working there. I asked if she would be able to pass my details on to the relevant people. So emailed her with an updated portfolio. I haven't heard anything back yet but I am still hopeful for at least some work experience.
