Too often a design or architecture degree is seen as a means to an end (a job in an established practice). But imagine for one moment that there are no employers, no firms to send your CV to, no interviews to be had - what would you do? How would you forge your own path after graduation? The most ingenious and driven designers have found weird and wonderful ways of making opportunities for themselves, often by applying their skills across the creative disciplines of art, design, architecture and interiors. Knowing what you want from your design career and being able to adapt your strategy to suit is basic and vital - just like in the wild, designers need to evolve.
Written by Gem Barton, Head of the 2nd Year Interior Architecture course at Brighton University, this book celebrates the various strategies that students and graduates are taking to gain exposure, while also including interviews and inspirational advice.
