What are interns, colleagues and students think.

Over the past decade, we’ve hired many interns and graduates. Many of our interns and students are now fully employed designers, working at small agencies to Fortune 500 companies.

Having been taught by both Brett and Miles I can safely say you should listen to what they have to share with the world. They can help you develop the skills you need in the real world
