Calling all Wordsmiths, Art Directors, Designers & Motion Graphics Artists
On the 31st of January, we return to Google to host our first Portfolio Masterclass of 2017, focusing on Visual Communication & Writing.
This is an opportunity for established and upcoming creatives to connect to industry. Enter the year with creative confidence, be in the know about where you want to go and how to get there.
Hosted at Google’s stunning Tottenham Court Road HQ, this event is open to anyone interested in, or working in Writing, Copywriting, Art Direction, Design & Motion Graphics. Start your 2017 with advice and inspiration. This is a chance to liaise with industry leaders, gain insightful feedback and network with likeminded individuals... it could even lead on to pastures new for your career as Google are looking to hire 5 inspiring individuals to join their Creative Lab.
