We are very pleased to announce that we are holding out first ever conference for graphic design students, which has been named Sex, Drugs & Helvetica.
Here is our one paragraph on the event.
Dealing with and charging clients, what to put in your folio and how to present it, the must have books and must read blogs, knowing who actually owns your work and what does a day in the life of a designer really involve? Join Melbourne designers and other industry professionals as they answer your questions and shed light on the things that matter to young designers. Sex, Drugs & Helvetica, an event by Positive Posters for graphic design students in a big room with seats.
If you’re a design student living in Melbourne, we think you would be crazy to miss out on this event. We have tried to pack as much value in as possible and kept the price student friendly at $40. Hope we see you all there! Any questions, give us a call on (03) 9420 5070 or shoot an email to Tenielle email@example.com. All the details are below.
