Hey everyone! I'm taking the big step to transition into the creative industry and would love some advice and/or insight.

I am a Project Manager in the Transport industry. I also have experience in creative event planning and curation, art, writing and photography (the latter 3 I have persued purely in my own time over the years).

I'm determined to better align my career with my passions, and would like to eventually get into Creative Directing. Some advice on how to make myself more desirable for opportunities and employment with little direct experience would be helpful. I would love to hear about your journeys so far from Creative Directors and Project Managers out there!

Thanks in advance!

  • Hi,
    Getting contacts and experience is important. Depending on what it is you're aiming for, collaboration is a good thing too.
  • Hey Lesley,

    Thought I’d drop you a message. I am Digital PM working in publishing, I do have a background in the arts but I am not currently working on the creative projects I would like to. I am also interested in heading down the Creative Director route. I’d be happy to connect and chat further and offer each other some advice and encouragement if you like?

    Best wishes and good luck! :)
