This is quite random but since I've lost my job, I've decided to try for a job that will actually happy; graphic design. The problem is that after having a long discussion with a friend of mine who works as a graphic designer for a medical company he said that the best way to get work is to freelance for free until you get a name for yourself. So with that in mind, does anyone know any local businesses, small sites etc that might want any graphic design work for free? I'll try to set up an online art portfolio soon too so there are examples of my stuff as well. I know it's a long shot but meh.
