So you’re a Product Design student, but are you doing all you can to promote yourself in the right way and break in to the industry?
Last week I was invited down to Bournemouth University to give a guest talk to their Product Design students. The talk covered many areas including portfolio advice, useful approaches and mindsets to the early stages of design projects, giving an insight into what a career in design might look like, but also talking about effective actions to take with regard to self-promotion and getting yourself out there.
The students and grads who came down took a lot of value from this, and you can check out the full talk for yourself below:
Good luck with your folio! Comments and questions welcome below..
