Undertaking live graphic design projects are a great way of testing your creativity in a real world situation. It can give your design confidence a boost, being asked to produce something in the first place, being listened to as a designer, seeing your work being used and circulated, and being paid for your efforts.
If you could meet your favourite creative practitioner, what would you ask them? Work-related learning, such as visits to studios, conversations with practitioners, or more involved relationships through live projects and placements, all offer direct ways to help inform your knowledge and understanding of your discipline.

Because I am researching for the second edition of Becoming A Successful Illustrator I feel I have a finger on the pulse of contemporary illustration. Despite having several books and journals to my name and a sustained career in this area I think it’s simplistic to make absolute announcements about what illustration is as though it were a unified entity to be objectively understood. It’s not. There is no such thing as a typical illustrator either, nor a typical work methodology.
