Career Bootcamps

For the last 2 years, Frankie has been traveling around the globe running Career Workshops, called #TDKgetmeajob, with a superb response. From Brisbane, to Berlin, to Barcelona, to Buenos Aires, and every imaginable timezone, everyone gave us rave reviews so we kept doing them!

We want to help you with everything you don’t learn at uni about the design industry, specifically about who YOU are and your future career. We hate that you’re told ‘show everything you can do’ in your folios, even if you hate it. This will put you on the wrong path for life, and will most likely stop you from getting a job rather than help you. We’re very passionate about designing your dream design career around you, and you only.

Thats why in 2019, we’re launching four Design Career Bootcamps in exotic places around the world! Imagine instead of passively listening to the info you need in a sweaty classroom for the afternoon, you get one-on-one attention over a whole week to pimp your career, and score that dream job while you're on holiday, with awesome people in awesome places!

Please note:

  • The image we’ll use on Instagram will be curated by us and loosely linked to your company to get the best results for you from our audience. Sit back and relax, we’ve got this!
  • Internships are free to post, but please be respectful! This is is not a free design service. Our student and graduate following is of the highest quality and we want to honour their talent. Please respect the students and other commitments they might have time/money wise when submitting your ad. Thanks!
  • We love jobs! And so does our audience. Because our following is mostly students and graduates, the best jobs to advertise are for junior and mid weight roles. Specially graphic design, digital design, typography and illustration. Please note these are paid full time or part time roles, so if you have a one off project to advertise, put it under our Freelance jobs dropdown instead. Thanks!
  • (Please note the image we’ll use on Instagram will be of our choice and no necessarily from your company, but will be loosely linked to your ad, it will be the highest of standards and one which you will get the best results from our audiences with. Trust us, we’ve got this!)
  • Welcome to our new section for freelance one-off jobs! To keep things simple, we want to connect you with the talent by advertising what you need, and encouraging people to email you directly with an example of their work. You can choose who to work with from all the submissions you receive. Everything is done online, and you can expect a designer to be dealing with you remotely. The good news is you won’t be limited to talent locally - this is advertised in each of our cities, meaning you will get a much higher standard of work to choose from. Picking a budget is very hard - we do not encourage work for a fiver like some websites, because you will end up with something worth a fiver!

    Our community is full of the best emerging talent, and a average price should be around half of that of a professional. Our community is full of the best talent, and a average price should be around $65 p/h.
