Here at Wonderstuff we’re proud of our industry and keen to support young designers. Before coronavirus became part of all our lives, director Paul Alderson and design director Kerry Neesam worked with students at our local universities to share industry experience and give advice and support to the growing local talent.
Helping up and coming designers is more important now than ever – so they’re continuing to do this via zoom.
Paul is currently holding mock interviews with students from the MA Communication Design course at Northumbria University to give them more experience of the types of questions they could face.
Kerry is running feedback sessions with the final year Graphic Design BA (Hons) students at Teesside University to help give their work a commercial edge.
“Some students will be looking for their first job in an agency, others may have already decided to start their own business,” said Paul. “Our experience across the sector means we can share useful real world insights and advice. We’re very pleased to be able to continue to give back in this way.”
