The Design Kids Talk

Last night we took part in The Design Kid's November event in London, where we spoke about 'Creative Fears'. We gave examples of times we've had fears and anxieties within the creative industry, but also gave examples that were shared with us through our socials, from various different creatives. We then offered some potential solutions to these worries, and finished the night off with some portfolio crits.

Also big shout to Ben Mottershead who also gave an excellent talk!
