Career Bootcamps

For the last 2 years, Frankie has been traveling around the globe running Career Workshops, called #TDKgetmeajob, with a superb response. From Brisbane, to Berlin, to Barcelona, to Buenos Aires, and every imaginable timezone, everyone gave us rave reviews so we kept doing them!

We want to help you with everything you don’t learn at uni about the design industry, specifically about who YOU are and your future career. We hate that you’re told ‘show everything you can do’ in your folios, even if you hate it. This will put you on the wrong path for life, and will most likely stop you from getting a job rather than help you. We’re very passionate about designing your dream design career around YOU, and you only.

Thats why in 2019, we’re launching Design Career Bootcamps in exotic places around the world! Imagine instead of 4 hours in a large sweaty classroom, you get 7 WHOLE DAYS to pimp your career, with cool people, in cool places!
