In the progress tutorial with Andy I asked him whether he felt like there was anything missing within my portfolio as I wanted to change my brief 5 (D&AD body shop brief) to something else as I already have a packaging brief within my FMP. He said my portfolio is very retail based ...what i've been aiming for, but maybe this would go against me when applying for jobs that work for more than just retail clients. So in keeping with my rationale... but also adding something a little different Andy suggested making an advertising campaign for a gallery, as me and jonny are already doing branding and promotion for our own culture festival I thought it might be interesting to advertising and promote a current event in a museum or similar, keeping with the arts and culture section of my rationale.
