If you’re serious about getting your work out there in front of an audience, chances are you’ll have to give networking a try. Not only will it test your ability to balance a cup of tea, biscuits, your bag, coat and your business cards/ portfolio all in one hand, but it’s a great chance to meet like-minded creative types and have a go at making contacts in the industry.
We’ve recently attended a few events at the Northern Design Centre organised by Design Network North. They’re definitely an organisation to keep your eye on.. Not only is it a great resource for creatives in the region, but they organise some pretty useful events.
As you know Shift’s approach to working is through collaboration, so getting the chance to network with other creative disciplines means we’ve met quite a few people we’re excited about working with in the future. If you’re considering attending next month make sure you come and say hello. We’ll be found next to the bacon sandwiches..
