Happy Monday, my toastie Coasties! It’s that time of year where jobs start popping up, so keep an eye on the TDKGCFB group (how’s that for an acronym!). Make sure you’ve got your Typism tickets sorted, before they’re gone and enter the competition, also found in the group. If you missed it, there is an interview up on the TDK site with previous #TDKTuesdays host, Rachel of Harmonica. We’ve got a working with acrylics evening in the pipeline for #TDKTuesdays October, so keep an eye out for deets!

Johanna already had a super impressive (international!) communications career, but decided to upskill at Shillington to develop new technical skills, learn design thinking and prepare to launch a brand new venture.
