Will Hudson, one of the creators of It’s Nice That came in to talk to us for Making a Living week.
He studied Graphic Design at Brighton University and it was there that he created a blog for a project called ‘It’s Nice That’. After university he became a junior designer at Third Eye Design, still doing his blog on the side. But there came a point where It’s Nice That was doing fairly well and he and Alex Bec decided to make it a full-time job.
After his talk, there was time for questions and he gave some great advice. Or at least I thought it was good.
For instance, if you want to work for a certain company rather than say I want to work for you. Ask them to see your work, or ask for advice/go fro coffee.
Luck = preparation + opportunity. Get into the habit of doing things.
Work hard and have a positive attitude.
Hire people you enjoy spending time with.
Lastly, work just within you comfort zone, being open and honest.
