Creative Conversations for the Class of 2020

Map collaborator Matthew Cockerill invited Will Howe to join him and other industry experts to discuss how to secure a creative career in challenging times. Collectively, they discussed various strategies you can employ to increase opportunities.

For Will, the team are looking for a range of skill sets and interests that could be useful in the future. “You might have a passion for photography or filmmaking or coding, and I would always think about how we can plug that in in different ways so we can deliver projects in new ways.”

However, just as important is the ability to demonstrate process. “We put a heavy emphasis on strategy and thinking, so when we see a portfolio we like to see the process you’ve gone through to get to the final stage,” he says. “We’re not necessarily interested in what the final product is or looks like, it’s more about how you got there.”
