I think so but I've been known to be wrong.
::Ditch? ..I thought you were under a bridge..::
I move around. It's the hobo way.

For me personally I'd look for a mix of work showing technical skill/knowledge and some more creative work to show that they are a thinker and can push a few boundaries.
Seems that the criteria for modern courses has changed since my day when you initially got accepted on courses by your artistic ability initially.
I'm seeing more and more "Designers/creatives" that can barely draw a stick man which is a shame.

No mate. I'm still in my ditch although I've added a kind of en-suit.
Kind of. :D

Points for effort @Scotty

I agree with @scotty
I worked at an agency years ago and we worked on a schools brand ( http://www.mbc.qld.edu.au ) and whilst the overall branding was quite strong and good the actual logo mark was pretty typical, shield with very literal translation although its not one of the worst I've seen thats for sure.
I think schools are normally run by people who don't want to step to far away from what the norm is and sometimes they expect to see what everyone already has so tread carefully but good luck and hope you can do something amazing!

Thanks for than man, very helpful. Yes, I'm finding the difference between a job in Midlands and a job in London is immense. Quite confusing when you first start out.
I'm starting to spread the net a little wider as well to mainland Europe - Germany, Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark. Those places seem very cool - I've also got a wife and two kids in tow so I have a bunch more to think about.
Thanks for keeping an ear out :)

@ADAMDESIGNS @MONTEBOYD @CRISPE Thanks guys :) I haven't heard back from the company in question, but it was a good exercise and folio piece regardless.
@Scotty Not as yet... I've started looking, but the whole relocation thing is a turn off for a lot of studios, especially the smaller ones. I'm in talks with a couple of recruiters and have had some interest, but overall it's slow going. I'm also finding it difficult to figure out how much to be asking for as pay rates seem to vary wildly from place to place and most seem to be on the fairly low side if you convert them! The general consensus is that living costs are cheaper, but after doing a bit of research I'm not too sure.
If any of you know of a cool studio looking for a 3D artist - let me know :) Folio linkage:
