Help me become NSW’s Chief Funster


What is this Chief Funster business?

Tourism Australia launched the Best Jobs in the World campaign in March 2013, offering 6 lucky people the opportunity of a lifetime! One of the jobs on offer is the position of Chief Funster which involves living the life of a VIP in Sydney, NSW for 6 months, attending events and blogging, tweeting and instagramming about them. Over 600,000 people applied and Shay was fortunate enough to be 1 of 25 shortlisted into the next stage! Now, she needs to promote herself as much as she can to have a chance of making it in to the final 3 so that she can be flown over to Australia to fight for her chance to be Chief Funster!

Here’s the video that got Shay shortlisted;

        Adobe Illustrator can be a little trciky to get your head around, particularly after getting used to the workflow of applications such as 3d application like Photoshop. It is the most powerful vector software on the planet, and whether you are using it alone, or in combination of any 3d software.
