Networking, but not networking for the sake of networking. I like making new friends and they just happen to work in the same industry as me. I think that is so much better than approaching someone and asking them for a job straight off the bat.
Digital Designer, Isobar
You’re not different because you’re highly motivated or love the industry. You need to work out what you think and why, and how it shapes your work and approach to it.
Managing Director, Streamtime
You need to have very good management to be able to work internationally, good management includes being good with timing and process. I love working in design but 50% is management and 50% is design, sometimes even 80% is management.
