OUGD602: Placements & Events // United by Design Placement

Since the beginning end of January, I've been working one day per week at United by Design, in York. A design studio which specialises in branding – whilst also offering a broad range of services.

At this point, April 2015, I've been there for 15 weeks now. I'm throughly enjoying my time there, and learning a lot about the design process from the design team. With the studio being quite small, with only 4 full time members, I can hear all the ins and outs of the process, from the account handling, to the printing. Which is always valuable to listen to, learning from triumphs and mistakes.

I plan to stay there as long as I can afford to.

OUGD602: Placements & Events // Dot York 2015 – Web Conference

I was lucky enough to grab a student ticket for Dot York 2015, a web conference in York. The student ticket was free, as opposed to the £110 full price ticket. I'm going to miss these student deals.

The conference was aimed at anyone who is (or, who wants to be) involved in some aspect of making ‘things’ for the web. There are over 300 tickets available for designers, developers, copywriters, managers, photographers etc. to snap-up.

Recently designated a UNESCO City of Media Arts, there’s a certain buzz around creative industries in York at the moment. On top of that, it’s a beautiful city with old streets, a few good pubs and much more.

There were some fantastic speakers, there.
