LEARNING FROM GEN-Z

This Youth Month, we are making it our mission to learn from our youth. That’s why we asked our youngest design unicorn Tina what advice she would give us – as a young creative in the industry:

"Creative industries are hungrier than ever for the innovation and fresh perspectives offered by the new generation of creatives. That being said, things aren't always going to be easy, but hopefully, they'll be worth it, and all that matters is that you're engaging, exciting and ready to get no sleep. No one has your ideas, and no one brings them to life the way you do!

Don't forget you have to sell yourself. Be true to yourself because we live and die by our talent as designers in a creative industry. It's all that we have. It's our "fuel" in life. Become your very own design unicorn being ruthless with your talent."
