Crossed posted on the Newspaper Club blog
Last week was our inaugural Student Week. Lots of students use Newspaper Club at this time of the year for final shows and portfolios so we put together a few blog posts offering advice to graduates from well known industry figures. In case you missed it, here's a quick round up.
Three writers, Henrietta Thompson, Nick Ashbury, Dan Germain, three illustrators Noma Bar, Neil Roberts, Andy Smith, three designers Max Gadney, Michael Bow and err, me, told us what one thing they'd recommend students read.
Kim Papworth, global partner Wieden + Kennedy offered us some advice on portfolios and getting interview.
Simon Manchipp from SomeOne told students of design they weren't designers.
And you might want to look at these posts (elsewhere on the web) from Michael Bierut, Michael Johnson, Frank Chimero, David Airey and Jamie Weicks superb The 50. Good luck with the final shows and dissertations and all that.
