Will my Indian education n experience help me get a decent job in a top design firm in UK (London) ?
I am an Indian Graphic Designer packing my bags for UK sometime in mid 2005. I have done my B.F.A (Applied Art) from Delhi College of Art, INDIA. Well versed with all the softwares i.e Adobe Illustrator, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe PageMaker, Corel draw, Quarkxpress i have both PC and macintosh skills. I am learning web design these days ( HTML, Dreamweaver, java scripts, Flash).
Have worked with an Top Advertising Agency in NEW DELHI,INDIA for 1 and a half year. Presently i am a freelancer designing for corporate clients independently from last 8-9 months.

design is vast…being specific won’t work.
Surely this discussion will help me a lot to know wat’s instore for me in future when i am in London, How should i go ahead in approaching the rite Design firms, also how should i prepare myself for it from now.
All of urs advice is very imp to me. So pls gimme ur views.
I receive many international emails at work and what sets Indian correspondents apart from the rest is their “email language” - I strongly recommend that if you wish to be considered seriously, either as a job applicant or bulletin board querent, you consider writing your sentences out. I realise that within the Indian internet community the use of “U” and “R” and other abbreviations are permissible but when communicating with the rest of world, it creates a negative impression
I’ve worked with a “Top Advertising Agency” in New Delhi, India in the past, and I know that proper english and spelling is definitely used for all other communication media.
