Desktop Magazine #285 August
It’s August already, and we’re pleased to announce our annual careers and education
issue. Each year we get asked a ton of questions: Where should I study? Should I work for free? How should I present my folio? How do I get a job?
The August issue is where we ask the experts and find out the answers and more. Whether you are thinking about studying design, are about to graduate, or have been in the industry for a few years and looking for a change, there are plenty of tips, opinions and advice within these pages to get you on the right track – from checklists, to stress and interview tips to a design course guide, it’s all in here.
We’re also pleased to feature a profile on the boys at Motherbird (who also designed our fluoro cover), as well as nearly 40 illustrations by Melbourne-based illustrator Eirian Chapman.
