- I am in the same boat as you and might be able to help.Companies you want to work for, may be lacking in certain areas (website, logo etc)You could create concepts for them and tag them on social media to gain thier attention.
- This goes for any creative:Work hard on your creative output.Work as if your life depends on it, because it does.
- keep experimenting.
- Thank so much!!! All these valuable answers. I really appreciated :)
- My 5 top tips would be:1. Build a portfolio of mentors - Creative Mentor Network has a brilliant program matching creatives to mentors.2. Head to events - my top picks are She Says, Glug, Nicer Tuesdays, For Working Women & Women Who3. Attend The Dots Portfolio Masterclass (shameless plug :-) - follow the page here https://the-dots.com/pages/the-dots-portfolio-masterclasses-741264. Make the world a better place: Zince VC match designers with business leaders and technologists to solve the world’s toughest social issues. https://the-dots.com/pages/zinc-vc-824315. Always wear a smile :-)
- Your career should be designed too. Learn from every role you take and when you’re able, be judicious in what roles you do take to maximize learning new things. Stay curious!
- Start low, and work your way up. Entry-level junior designer jobs aren't the most glamorous, but if you prove to them you can do a good job then they'll feed you more exciting projects.
- Work your wotsits off, insist on gleefulness, and don’t get disheartened. It’s your life. ENJOY.
