The amount of advice any young designer encounters in the first few years of their professional career is overwhelming. This is especially true in the type and lettering world—an industry with no clear path to follow. In this presentation, James will relay only the savoriest nuggets of wisdom that have traversed his ear canals in the past few years transitioning from student, to working professional.
