Recently, my colleague Simon and I were asked to put together a talk for design students about how we got into the industry, as part of the Behance Reviews event at 2022 in Manchester.
It was pretty daunting to be put in this position as both Simon and I are relatively fresh out of uni. So we decided to look at each of our differing ways into design, including what we felt we did successfully through uni, in freelance, in interviews.. etc, and explain the different routes that we each took to get to where we are now.
We also went into what it’s like actually having a job, and our scariest ‘thrown in at the deep-end’ moments.
