Up, Down, Up, Down

I'm in a slump. I don't know when it started going downhill. I'm having a hard time sleeping again (a never ending cycle) and my eagerness to design "fake" companies is slowly fading. I did nothing but watch movies the past two days. Mostly downloads and one treat from my sister --- movie and dinner. Guess which movie it was? Here's a conversation from the movie:

Boy: You said that ______ would try to ______ me. Do you want me to let him?
Old Man: Yes.


Then there's the job hunt. Bad news is still no word from the company I liked. Good news is I got an email from an advertising company about my jobstreet application. I'm not that excited though because they asked for sample works/portfolio for a preliminary screening. I sent some including the latest but I need more! I'm not really expecting them to call me for an interview. I want to work in an advertising company but with my current works I'm not getting my hopes up. Don't get me wrong. I'm not saying I'm not qualified. I am. I just need more projects.

EDIT: Logo design for an old product "Honey Beetz". It's not being sold anymore.

I need to make more! If you would like to help me, you can give me a "fake" project or a real one. Logos, websites, brochures, posters, anything that involves graphic designing! Give me the name of the company, nature of the business, color theme, do you have a specific look or feel you're aiming for, etc. I know I could give make up those details myself but it's practice. I might subconsciously cheat if I do it myself.

This post for help would work better if there were a lot of people reading my blog. Right now, I only have one follower and she's a real life friend. Hey friend! Help me!
