For part of my placement experience I travelled across the world to Durban (South Africa) where I was a guest speaker at Vega School for Design, Brand and Business. I spoke to design and branding students about creating a recognisable brand for yourself when applying for work but I also spoke about the best ways to present your work and yourself when creating you portfolio and the importance of creating specific showreels for specific jobs and clients. The talk went well and I answered the questions asked by the students in the time I was there. In their feed back to their lecturer the students said they found the talk beneficial and got a lot out of it in terms of how they could present their own work in the future and also on the different types of showreel they should be creating.
I really enjoyed giving this talk and found that it much like my previous work tutoring earlier in my placement year gave me a sense of satisfaction.
