HERE’S A THOUGHT

5 tips on your final year at Uni

11/10/16
You may have seen Ali on our Instagram at Norwich University of the arts prepping the final years student for the next months ahead. Here’s 5 tips how to get the most out of it:
Spending time in the studio – That eureka moment can strike at any time and come from anywhere, your work will be better if you’re engaged with your course & cohort, and hey after all you’re paying for it!
Listen – Your portfolio turns into a very personal labour of love, you’ve whittled ideas and crafted concepts but you may have gone down the wrong path… I can’t express the value of getting others to critique your work – when you’re close to a project you may overlook the most obvious details.
Back up work – Your back up work should tell a story of how you got from A to B and be logical in its navigation, I only showed off in an interview once, but It was one of my best interviews!
Dissertation – Contextualising your work is important and you should use it as an opportunity to strengthen you practice. Chose a topic which will keep you interested but also relates to your studio work to get the most out of this process.
Have an exit plan – You’ve got your degree in graphic design now what… start planning how you are going to get that dream job;  start drawing up a list of which agencies you want to work for and remember you don’t have to wait until D&AD new blood to start getting your name out there, why not introduce yourself now?
