On Thursday 26th March, W+K designers Michael Bow and Kelly Satchell headed down to the coast to speak to Brighton University’s final year Design and Illustration students about life outside of education and life inside of W+K London.
Their background stories, design developments, processes and successes were shared, along with ‘embracing failure’ tales and agency anecdotes. All in the hope of giving the group a clear insight into how design remains at the very heart of many projects here at W+K London. Which is what makes it a pretty special place to work.
Michael and Kelly came away feeling hopeful that they managed to abolish some of the myths of working as a designer in advertising. As well as feeling pleased to spread word of what working life is like at W+K, as a designer, to a selection of young creative minds that might be considering a career in the industry.
The talk is one of many that the guys are hoping to make to students in the coming months, which coincides with the re-launch of our design placement scheme here. For more information please head here http://wklondon.com/careers/design-placements
