An Insider’s Story – In-house graphic designer

with 9 comments

Part of our growing Insider Stories, where professionals share their advice and experience

logo1 – What is your job?

In-house graphic designer at Kids Company

2 – How did you get into it?

I applied online to a job-post, got through the interview process and got selected for the position

3 – What do you enjoy about it?

I enjoy the playfulness, energy and the charm of the material I use to reflect Kids Company identity (which comes for the most part from the children and young people of Kids Company). I also enjoy the variety of tasks I undertake.

4 – What do you wish you had known before you entered your industry?

There isn’t anything I wished I knew before starting my career really. I’ve always approached my career in design as a self discovery process, where I challenge myself in doing better with every project undertaken while building-up existing knowledge.

5 – Top tips for someone wanting to start out in your sector

Try and gain as much experience as possible through internships, work-placements, self directed projects

  • Develop personal projects on topics you are interested in
  • Keep a sketchbook of raw ideas
  • Keep yourself up-to-date with the latest technologies, trends, software but be aware of the great name of the past
  • Look around you, inspiration is everywhere
