Advice to Design Students: Shower, Shave and Spellcheck


Advice For Design Students from UnBeige on Vimeo.

So our several hours of silence yesterday were due to our role moderating the student conference at AIGA’s NEXT conference. Thank you so much to Gail Anderson and her tips on how to keep your portfolio roach-free; Allyson Lack, Jennifer Sukis and Pamela Zuccker of Principle for an inspiring talk on working from three different cities; a memorable shot of both Adam Brodsley and Eric Heiman with shoulder-length hair; Garth Walker and his Plumber’s Butt; and Adrian Shaughnessy‘s soul-ful closing.

To deliver the wit and wisdom of the rest of the dozens of designers milling about, we got some of their musings on film. Behold our gift to design students everywhere.
