PPRD 2 Report

May 12, 2009

Hers is my final report for PPRD year 2, this has my reflections and achievements of the last year.

Also here is my career plan, as i have said probaly many times, me, Dan and James from the course have come together and created our own business – Vers Creative. Now this is a complete creative service offering Graphic Design, Web Design and Motion Graphics. We have put a lot of effort in the last few months into this project and from this have gined a few big clients. I am very confident we can build from this, learing even better skills in the third year, giving us an advantage of offering better services an building up this business in the next 5 years to an established company. We will all be directors in the company with equal shares and one day we might even have to employ more people. But for now this is my career plan, it will build me up great skills in the industry, but also as a managing director, gaining valuable experience.
