Tuesday night saw The Brand Agency host student design group, The Design Kids, for their #TDKtuesdays June event.
Around 35 students and graduates squeezed into The Brand Agency’s boardroom to hear from the Agency’s design team, giving insight into their process and approach to creating and managing some of WA’s most iconic brands.
TDK has now expanded to over 44 cities globally, working with design students and graduates, offering them industry knowledge, exposure and opportunities into the creative industry.
“Visiting The Brand Agency has always been a popular event on the TDK calendar,” says Rachel Thwaites, The Design Kids’ Perth Host. “TDK is all about bridging the gap between students and professionals, giving them greater exposure to the design industry. We are thrilled that the team from Brand can not only offer their expertise, but spend quality time with these guys as they prepare for the industry.”
The Brand Agency’s Head of Design, Dan Agostino, led the presentation.
“It’s really important for our industry to help out and give back to students – whether it’s through The Design Kids, AGDA, or the PADC – every little bit helps. I remember how hard it was get your foot in the door, shopping your portfolio around town and hoping for that ‘big break’. I only wish there were industry events and opportunities like this around when I graduated all those years ago.”
For any students or graduates who wish to get involved, the next #TDKtuesdays event is on 2nd July. Visit thedesignkids.org for details.
