did you ever con­sider set­ting smoth­ing up with class­mates

yes, cam­ber­well press kind of be­came that, if it wasnt fo rthat we probs could have done a stu­dio. But we did the logo, made the web­site got fund­ing eg the sme stuff you do when you start a busi­ness, but with­out much of the risk in­volved

re­cruite­ment: what do dif­fer­ent places look for, mo­ross and up

mo­ross has only 10 oeiple, so it’s very much about find­ing the right type of per­son, gotta fit in etc mosross got in­terns, peo­ple ap­ply­ing for jobs and they were tech­ni­cally good but did­n’t re­ally fit into the en­vi­rom­nent

uo is a much bigere place, youre more of a cog in a ma­chine, you get a lot of peo­ple work­ing for a year and mov­ing on, the ppeo­ple ar­ent as emo­tion­ally in­vested, they hire more for tech­ni­cal skills

how do you bal­ance your port­fo­lio dig­i­tal / print

de­pends where youre go­ing, uo is look­ing for dig­i­tal stff, place like mo­ross mught be okay with more print­mak­ing stuff. Also tweak you port­fo­lio de­pend­ing on where you’re go­ing to ap­ply

how ben­e­fi­cial is it to have a ba over and fda

the fda is re­ally idus­try fo­cus (eh) if your work is god you should­n’t need that ex­tra let­ter on you qual­i­fi­ca­tion. The ba is more about be­ing ex­per­i­men­tal, idea gen­er­a­tion. Also you’re prob­a­bly more likely to move up quicker with the ed­u­ca­tion you get on a de­gree.

Also if youre do­ing big­ger pro­jects it shows that you’re able to do man­age­ment, sit in meet­ings, hire a van etc
