Work It

In collaboration with Winchester Visual Arts students, Crowd Talks presents ‘Work It’ - a quickfire discussion on all things design employment.

We’ll talk about how to approach agencies, studios and recruiters in the hunt for work after graduation. As well as this more traditional landscape, we’ll explore how current students have the potential to change the design industry as we know. Creatives are increasingly going it alone, opting out of the 9-5 and into the Kickstarter generation of tech-savvy freelancers and startups. But how do we navigate this new world of work on our own terms?

On the panel:
— Derek Yates , Programme Leader BA Graphic Arts WSA and author of Communication Design: Insights from the Creative Industries
— Alex Rivett & Alex Mavronicholas , BA Graphic Arts Students WSA
— Andrew Lister, Teaching Fellow in Graphic Arts WSA
— Adam Proctor, Senior Teaching Fellow in Digital Media within WSA
