Another workshop I attended while at New Blood was visiting design agency Creative Cherry, which was held not to far from Brick Lane. Cherry was founded in 2006 and has been progressing greatly within the past four years. A number of graduates attended the talk and it was very insightful to hear what advice both the creative directors Mark and Tom of Cherry had to say. From contacting agencies to organising a portfolio for different interviews, having that information I feel is vital at this stage of my design career. They talked about their own experiences when dealing with print deadlines, clients and also art direction. Keeping up a good attitude and staying positive seemed to be a strong point with the pair. Being passionate about your work will always be a positive area to have as a designer and that will never go away.
