Crowdfunding is a new type of fundraising where you can raise funds for your own personal cause, even if you're not a registered charity.
The page owner is responsible for the distribution of funds raised.
My names Robert Ford and I'm a junior Graphic Designer from Essex, In 2017 I graduated university with a Upper Second-Class Honours in BA Hons Graphic Design.
After that I dived into the world of Graphic Design with my first job as a junior designer at a licensing company in London, but the job was only contracted there for did not last. There was then a period of time where i was un-employed so i worked full time as a waiter to support myself and to help the stress of my partners wages having to support me as well as her.
Shortly after this i started work at another company in london as a Graphic designer but unforchantly i did not have the same passion as i once did. So i took the big step and choice to go back to university and do my PGSE Level 5 in teaching as teaching was something i always liked the idea of in college but with the preasures of university and being told so strictly that we must make a mark on our industary unforchantly my dreams were pushed back.
I start this course at the beginning of september 2018 but after that i hope to go and study my masters in graphic design to further educate myself to a level where i feel comfortable passing on advice and knowledge to other upcoming designers.
Any support is welcome and greatly appricated, the money would go towards the tution fees involved in the course and I plan to do my best at funding myself via part time jobs whilst doing my studies.
