A winter visit

Last December I visited Manchester College to speak to 2nd year students on the Graphic Design and Advertising Foundation Degree about Belly Button Designs and the greetings card industry. What a lovely group of students they were! They gave some great feedback on the talk and also had some interesting tales to tell of their own work.


Whilst at Manchester College I met Jenny one of the 2nd year students. Having a keen interest in greetings cards and just finishing a greeting card brief Jenny asked if she could come and do work-experience with us.

So, Jenny is here at Belly Button at the moment helping us to get everything ready for a tradeshow this coming weekend.


A very busy studio this week! Lots of tradeshow preparation!
