Design your own career

Being a designer is awesome and whether you’re graduating from university, changing trade or looking to gain new skills, design can be an inviting career choice. Your progression from junior to senior designer is more than just length of time served. Following Chris's talk you’ll have a clear view of how to progress your career and be the designer you want to be.

Emily Cressey

Developers of habit

Everyone has to start somewhere, yet the problem isn't learning the ways of the web industry, it's becoming used to them. Emily discusses staying mindful in the face of creativity and explaining why thinking like a beginner when going about your day to day isn't necessarily a bad thing.

Stefan McCready

It all started with an anchor tag

Sometimes it can be quite daunting going against the grain, especially for younger people who like to follow a trend. Stefan explores the difficulties he has faced since joining the industry at a young age. He focuses on how confidence can fluctuate, how learning to say no is vitally important and how making sure you can keep personal issues away from your work ethic and focus.
