There was alot of really useful information from Alex and it was good to see a design agency open there doors for us to explore. The environment of which they work in, seems a relaxed but visually more interactive. For example they have an in-house library; designers come in to talk about a new brief or a new book they are promoting. He also said that it’s a great environment if I were ever in London, I should pop by and stay active.
The Eureka project was a really interesting graduate scheme that 6 individuals were part of. It made YCN changing the relationship with everyday, new creative people. They documented the 6 week internship on their blog.
Basically keep being creative and we should do all the briefs, get my name known.
The talk was useful, however it did run over and I think all of us could feel the strain of getting fidgety. Alex was tired, I understand that he had had a hectic week but I don’t think he fully represented what YCN are about and how fun they are.
