My name is Marianne, I'm 24 and I currently reside in Denmark.
In this year 2017, I will finish my education as a graphics designer, and hope to start a busy life of crating epic products for all you guys out there. My dream is to either be hired in a larger company where the marketing and graphic material has to be in constant change and update, to follow the evolution of business today. Or to create my own company, and achieve a large costumer base, where I will experience the same evolution in business and marketing.
In my current situation, to achieve any of these goals, I need a larger portfolio. To do this, I of course need a steady amount of work cases, which I even before ending my education, have. Examples of my current cases are the following:
- Logo and Website development for a small local danish firm.
- Website development for a youtube/gaming community.
- Logo for a local danish sports team.
Now the reason for starting this funding page? My current work tools AKA My Laptop.
I am unsure how I have managed to get this close to the finish of my education, on my current laptop. Its a brilliant notebook laptop, that for any other reason than working with a graphic designers tools, would be perfect. At this point, starting on the above mentioned real life cases in order to actually improve my portfolio, I have quickly realized that in the long run, having to make the produkts, introducing them to costumers and behaving professional, this laptop cannot cut it.
An example? This notebook takes between 15-30 minutes, to load up adobe programs and previous created work. That is a lot of minutes, left to wait every time a project needs to load up, a new project has to be started, or when having to show a product to a costumer. It is plain simply unprofessional, in comparison to the goals and achievements I have.
Now. Still doing my education, and doing these project for slim to non profit (Again to improve my portfolio), I stand left with barely any money to put aside for the dream work-laptop. And this is why I do this funding page!
Any funding is highly appreciated, as it will get me closer to the proper tools I need to achieve my goals. With or without funding, I have started the process of saving up for a new laptop, but it is given that any donation helps in the right direction, and will mean that I can achieve my goal faster.
