An overview: you’ll need to be super pumped on your local design industry, have your own Paypal account, be willing to work for 4 hours a month (paid) and run a monthly meet-up. If this sounds like you The Design Kids are taking applications for the next 3 weeks, so just pop your details in this application form and they will take it from there.
What is #TDKtuesdays? The Design Kids HQ have decided here that there is waaaay too much emailing and not enough socialising. So – roll on Tuesdays (Luckily its begins with a T!) where they will sit down, have a beer and invite anyone to join in.
Some of the highlights from last year: multiple people got jobs, magazine swaps, team camping holiday, internships, collaborations, best friends were made, and group shows organised. And a lot of beer drunk! Its a great place for design students and grads to meet other design students and grad, talk, swap notes, get involved and just generally build a bigger design community where you live. Maybe they’ll be industry folk there too, who knows. If you are shy, and “networking” (dirty word) is hard, this is a easy place to start. Grab a friend and come say hi!
