To get a job as a designer it’s always your portfolio that matters, and not your qualifications. So is it still worth attending university? In this weeks interview Ian chats with Diane Gibbs to find out the answer to this question.
We discuss why university matters, what you should do before you attend, how you can make the most of your time studying, and the importance of networking with, and getting to know designers in the industry.
Diane is a graphic designer, entrepreneur, business owner, consultant, and a college professor at the University of South Alabama. She’s best known for her highly acclaimed Design Recharge interview series.
