In February, second-year Graphic Design students enjoyed the opportunity to meet and mingle with industry professionals in a dedicated networking event.

NETWORKING

The evening began in the South House reception, where students had the opportunity to meet and chat in a relaxed environment with industry guests and peers from their course.

ONE-TO-ONE ADVICE

After the initial ice-breaking networking session, students signed up to meet with industry mentors in a ‘speed-dating’ timed style set up, to discuss their career aspirations and get advice for their next steps.

Industry guests included local brand and design agencies Salad Creative, We are 778, Sideshow, Thinking Juice, Bright Blue Day, and many more.

SECURING PLACEMENTS

Some students have even gone on to gain internships from the event with Bright Blue Day, Customer Experience Agency, and We are 778, Design agency.
