Colm O'Connor, a designer from Watford Institute of Technology, has cooked up this marvellous mail out to promote himself.

Colm O'Connor, Design (Visual Communications) graduate from Watford Institute of Technology, has created another great piece to promote himself (you may remember Colm's previous self-promotional piece which was also a winner).

What struck us most about this mail out was the notepad sketches and scribbles that Colm has included alongside pieces of his work. It really shows his thought process and the effort that has gone into each piece.

But best of all, we haven't seen it before. A few Behance projects will have an early sketch attached but never in a polished portfolio have we seen the rough, early thoughts of a piece. For that reason alone this portfolio jumps out from the pack. After graduating last month, Colm is now interning at the award winning design consultants, TrueOutput.
