Advertising and PR agencies are another possibility, where you'd be involved in the process of creating positive images of organisations, individuals and products, and delivering imaginative solutions that generate sales or an increase in business interest.  

In the public sector, employers include museums, local authorities, schools, colleges and hospitals. Some professionals even set up their own studios and work as exhibiting artists or work as part of a studio collective.

There are huge opportunities where you can use your extremely creative and imaginative mind in the world of possibilities and opportunities.
