Make & Break Podcast // by D&AD and WPP

“For many people, landing their first job in the creative industry is an achievement enough, but in this podcast we explore how to make the most of it. D&AD New Blood Awards 2018 Winner, Adam Morton-Delaney, chats with designer Craig Oldham and Poke London’s Robyn Frost.”

Takes on this

  • Impostor syndrome when you’re a young creative working in a big agency→ Which Robyn Frost likes to think of a “party”, if you are there it’s because they want you there.
  • The importance of having mentors or at least someone that we can look up to and admire. There are some organizations out there to get a mentor like “who’s your mama” or “Blue Minorities”.
  • In all of the episodes, the guest speakers set a task for the audience. Robyn Frost advised to set ourselves 3 month goals of what we want to achieve. Craig Oldham talked about the perks of spending time with people that have different roles that you do.

What I’ll look next?
