This book is a guide to life starting out as a designer, it is not a set of do’s and don’t, but it is a big help in avoiding a lot of the bad things. It’s a bit rude and can be very blunt! Good luck!


Dedication This book is waving two figures at all my past teachers who said I’d get no further than school because of my dyslexia and fully expected me to be stacking shelves at the supermarket!

You may be living with a really nice looking person of the opposite sex and want to jump into bed with them, but don’t. It’ll only be really awkward the next morning and when the rest of the house find out (and they will) it’ll be even worse for the rest of the year. Your housemates are your family for the next year and your going to need their support!

Your probably going to be living in a house of between four and eight and in halls probably more. You all need to shower, trust me a couple day of solid design work, your going to stink! So shower, however if you all shower in the morning before a lecture, there’ll be no hot water, so best choose a quiet

c i P

time to have a good hot shower, even if it’s 1 am. At Uni you’ll do odd thing at odd times, but that’s fine. On a side note a shower can help your brain be more productive!
