These guys are great. Really nice and very good prices.
I've had a vinyl stickers made at Signarama many times before and asked for one off stickers in small sizes. Never had a problem asking but its quite expensive.

Yeah, career objectives doesn't really draw me in. Same with designer profiles at times, was forced to write one during uni but now I think it's just a snore reading through so many. Some sound really wanky or generic i.e. im a passionate designer who loves design - i love typography and everything creative. zzzzzzzzzzzzzz
keep it simple. layout nicely. be succinct and to the point. always review and cut down as much as you can. People's attention span aren't as long as you think.

It is a bit weird seeing myself as 'a client' lol.
But I do grow tired of seeing my work, even as soon as I finish them because I've been staring at it for too long during the process and this why I don't have that sort of excitement when reviewing my work. Also as soon as I finish one project I'm pretty much off to my next venture as well. But yeah it's also a confidence thing, it's hard being tough on myself at times but I like to turn it as motivation to keep learning and improving my skill set.
My "logo" is neutral and simple cause I don't want it to date and allows my work to be focused on. Even at work we're in the middle of rebranding the studio logo and it's proven to be the most difficult thing since there's so much emotional attachment to it.

I've studied Electronic Arts and then Visual Communication (design) at UWS. The best thing I've done for my education was doing my honours. Although you did mention that you prefer working in a studio and around people - you'll do that during your first 3 years of study. Doing my honours degree allowed me write my own thesis/research paper with the guidance of my supervisors.
If you prefer to work on one project for the year, aim to be an 'expert' in a particular field and don't mind doing a lot of reading and writing then maybe you should consider doing honours as well. It's something that you'll love to hate. It can be stressful but extremely rewarding.
I've revisited my interests when I was doing electronic arts and combine them with design and explored interactive landscapes which was unfamiliar territory for me (and my supervisors) at the time - big learning curve. Was the best way to challenge myself. It gave me the edge when looking for work too. Worth doing the extra year for.
