It’s hard to believe how quickly my first week at the Brown Ink Ballarat studio has come and gone! One word that comes to mind to describe my first week would be ‘busy’, but as Mum always said, busy is good. I’ve learnt a lot in my first few days as a ‘Brown Inker’. I’ve been shown the studio procedures and had a crash course in the new project management software affectionately known as Ink Central. My design projects have included stationery layouts and assisting with the compilation of a rather large corporate Style Guide. I’ve also asked my fair share of a huge thanks goes out to Fiona and Andrew for their assistance.

As a newcomer to Ballarat, I’m still getting used to the interesting weather (I’ve given up trying to predict it!) and I’m certainly enjoying the fact Ballarat doesn’t have a peak hour so my daily 10 minute commute to work is exactly that, 10 minutes. My next mission is to find a good coffee shop to swing by on the way to the studio of a morning.

I have certainly been made to feel welcome by the Brown Ink team and I’m excited about the opportunity to work alongside such a strong and talented team of creative professionals.

Here is a little TV commercial that is more about intertainment than selling. Put a smile on my face, hope it does the same for you. Amazingly done and without the use of any instruments. This is an advert for Tmobile UK, there are some talented people in this world.

For Oprah's first Australian visit Austral Bricks asked us to create a Brick Art wall to commemorate her arrival. Andrew Deutscher our Ballarat studio manager put his extensive artistic skills to work and created the "Oprah Wall".

During the course of a day I can receive up to 150 spam emails.  These are deposited directly into my spam filter. One a week I have a quick look at the spam emails just before I delete them.  Today I noticed a piece of spam with the subject heading. "Your EFTPS Tax Payment has been reejcted. Report ID: 01037687" Note the spelling mistake, this was to be the start of things to come. Being curious I clicked to see what the email contained.
