Visit from Matt and Wendy

Today during Paxman’s session, we had a little visit from two freelance graphic designers who now work together and have their own website and foil pressing business! How exciting! They talked to us about how they have gotten through life after uni and it was very interesting! Wendy struggled finding a job in a graphic firm/studio, while Matt walking straight into a graphics firm after about a week of leaving uni! Sometimes it’s luck I guess and work experience! Doing placements and building a client and designer contacts are really important. They also shown us what projects they have been apart of over the past few years and they have worked for SimplyBe, BaaBar, local restaurants! One even close to me by Allerton! It makes me really hungry for achieving something they have, being freelance and still being able to afford the bills, dream job!
