    Without meaning to sound patronising, are you aware of the noise fill tool? Surely you could use that in some way to achieve what you're looking for.

    I noticed a new Wix advert before watching the FA Cup highlights last night involving some of the Manchester City football (soccer) players. What a fantastic advert it was. I then immediately put the highlights on hold to see if Wix actually does power the MCFC website. Seems like they/their platform has done a good job.

    What are your thoughts on these 'website builders'? I think they are very handy for people wanting to start selling online quickly or want an online presence. It's astonishing how quickly web users have sophisticated over the last few years and I expect they'll probably be doing their own SEO/marketing in god knows how little time!

    Nice infograph man! I'd have gone for a different font colour for the main copy though, personally. Found myself squinting a fair bit. Keep it up!

    It goes without saying that an online portfolio is a necessity. Even if you haven't got 'real' work on there. Create some fun projects with a 'real-life' process and get some case studies online etc!

    I've contacted companies directly (only twice to be honest), and emailed them showing my passion for what I do and explain why I want to work for them. You need to make sure any potential employer knows what value you will bring to their company. The two interviews I have had - I've landed the job!

    Final words - be confident in any interviews. Show that you know what you're talking about. But also, be honest. If you're unsure or aren't as strong in a certain field to others, just say. You can always learn new things, how did you get here in the first place!?
