Behance Portfolio Reviews + WHY ARE CREATIVES REALLY CR*P AT SELLING!

Besides the portfolio interviews Paul Smith (your regular host!)  has decided to share his frustrations the about creative individuals and agencies trying to 'sell' their services to his marketing office within Elektron technology.

Paul has spent half his career as a creative/agency side, the other half working for local, national and International companies running substantial marketing budgets and global teams.

    Hi guys, great meeting you all the other week.
    I've recently written a couple of articles that you may find interesting/helpful. They focus on the steps to becoming a designer and what to expect once you're there. The first article focuses on moving from university and into the commercial world.
    Article 1:
    http://www.onespacemedia.com/news/2013/oct/22/becoming-designer-getting-your-foot-door/

    The second article is aimed at giving advice about the ins and outs of what to expect working in an agency culture.
    Article 2: http://www.onespacemedia.com/news/2013/dec/16/becoming-designer-stepping-plate/

    I hope they help

    Hi Guys. It was great to meet you all yesterday. Thank you very much for a great event. I found my project review very useful and encouraging! Shame I had to leave early… I was told that there were some card/ stationary shops in Cambridge that might be interested in my fairies. Does anybody know their names and locations,
