Drive invited recent design graduates to get an insight into the workings of a future mobility design studio, whilst gaining an understanding of what potential employers might be searching for.
Securing your first role is some of the difficult obstacles graduates face of their careers; it will possibly be daunting and there is no such thing as a fixed approach to getting that design position. After the highs of graduation, some individuals start questioning their capabilities, unsure of put an expert portfolio together, whilst others rise to the challenge – gaining exposure on social media, networking and assured of their portfolio content.
So to reassure and help individuals on their journey, our studio of designers, digital modellers and visualisers spoke passionately about their areas of experience and explained what their roles involve. Speaking openly encouraged everyone to feel comfy and comfy to ask whatever and as many questions as they needed.
It was also a very good likelihood for us to take a fresh have a look at our studio and dealing, in addition to a reminder of what an exciting and artistic industry we’re lucky to be working in!!
We had some light-hearted fun, after all. The Scalextrics made an appearance, in addition to a competitive sticky-note sketch challenge. The fiercest competition was the fastest lap on the sim racing game – the Top Gear style scoreboard spurred on the drivers to be the faster than the “Beat The Boss” lap time.
We’re keen about what we do and were inspired by the interest of the graduates, most of whom had never had the chance to step inside a Studio; it was gratifying to give you the option to share our passion with them and encourage the start of their careers. We hope everyone went away feeling encouraged knowing that we support them and want them every success for the longer term – wherever it might take them.
