As the BCN:MCR tickets go on sale today we thought it would be fitting to have another look at some of the amazing studios who are taking part in the event. Laura Meseguer has showed us some images of her awesome typography skills while Solo has shared with us some of their inspiring branding projects! If you like what you see you should definitely check out the exhibition at 2022NQ in Manchester, it opens for four weeks from the 27th March!

Laura Meseguer also gave us some brilliant advice to pass on to students about to enter the design industry;

Get an online portfolio
"Some companies will like to see your work along with your CV, before they even consider calling you for interview. Be extremely focused on the design, get to the point, don’t put unnecessary things, explain the briefing, the idea and the solution."

Contacting studios
"First, get to know well the work they do. Then contact the designer or the art director in the agency that you would like to work in by sending an email, and write a personal and different letter for every one, not a generic one. Once you get the interview, talk about your work, ask questions and make comments about the studio work and why you'd like to work with them."

Once you are in
"Once you are in, work hard, and be ready to accept any kind of duties. Show interest in other people’s work, listen and don’t be afraid to offer and ask for help. Be nice to everybody."
