Posted: 10/06/2017

Do you dream of spending your days in a creative and innovative environment, designing to your heart’s content? But you’re not sure where to start? Look no further! Here are some top tips for securing that dream job in design.

You’ve got to start somewhere. OK, so you may not quite have a brief yet, so why not make your own? Start designing for different products and you’ll have a portfolio together before you know it!

Charity begins at home. A great way to start when it comes to design is to lend your skills to the charity sector. Not only will you have the opportunity to practise your skills, you’ll also be contributing to a good cause too!

Get online. Make sure you have an online portfolio and use digital communications to make contact with established organisations and designers.

Look for internships. A great internship can shape your career and give you valuable contacts within the design sector – keep an eye out for any opportunities.

Are you award winning? There’s plenty of accolades out there celebrating new design and creative skills – Having recognition for your skills will only help your design career grow.

And of course, contact FS1 when it comes to design and creative vacancies!
