What’s the best career-related advice you’ve ever received?
Never stop learning. Constantly engage with everything and anything creative. Read books, go to art galleries, do online tutorials, follow design pages on Instagram, watch films, paint, draw, take photos, hang out with creative people. The more you fill your entire world with creativity, the more creative you become, and the more you increase your ability to think of creative ideas.
This is all a natural way of learning how to push your own creative agenda. Even though going to that sculpture exhibition or watching that new film may not seem like it’s helping you get into motion design, chances are it’s subconsciously helping you thrive and grow your artistic understanding.
What advice would you give someone looking to get into a similar role?
Like I mentioned earlier, trying to get a job as an apprentice, intern, runner or junior is the most vital part of getting on your feet. If you can convince a company that you are hardworking and that you’re willing to learn, you will gain invaluable experience.
It’ll help you in all cases to not only get better at what you do, but also meet new people and make connections in the industry. It’s just a great way to get the ball rolling. From then, just keep going, keep making cool stuff and it’ll all eventually pay off. I promise.
