The Self Promotional Pack is a special CV kit which includes an introduction card, dual ended pen, a small bottled snack, and her resume. The resume itself looks like a typical color swatch fan, a common tool for artists and designers alike, but on each page of swatch, there is a facet of Aroha’s professional life.
