Introducing a brand new way to learn...
and you don't have to lift a finger! It's dropped into your inbox once a week!
Our Graphic Design Survival Kit acts as your personal guide to the creative industry. It's broken down into handy weekly emails packed full of resources, inspiration and advice to help you kick-start your career as a designer!
This kit was created by three industry professionals, each at a different point in their creative career to support people of all skill levels, interests, and creative backgrounds.
There are 15 Chapters and each will give you useful information, tips and advice on an important area of the creative industry. We will cover everything from what tools you will need and how to approach a project to finding the right job role and developing a killer portfolio.
We know starting out in the industry can feel pretty daunting and it can be tricky to know where to begin...thats why our team at YES wanted to put together a survival kit which covers everything from the equipment you can expect to need to what job roles are out there and how to put together a killer portfolio.
We also includes links to tones of handy resources and creative sites for you to bookmark which we (and most other creatives) swear by for downloadable assets, design news and most importantly the motivation to keep on working!
If you decide to sign up you will receive all of this information via a weekly email and it's important to mention that you can opt in or out of each of the 15 topics, so if you know you won't find something
interesting or useful you can just skip over it, no need to clutter your inbox.
Once you are all signed up we have a few intro emails to explain all of the technical details and how to make the most of this resource for designers/creatives.
We know we certainly get enough emails and we are sure you do to...but we have designed this campaign to be different and hopefully something you look forward to! It's a similar experience to taking an online course. The content is all about giving useful advice on the areas listed below so you can reach your full potential!
Below is a list of the topics which are covered in the survival guide. Remember you don't have to receive emails for each and every one if you don't want.
However reading the whole guide will give you the best over view of the industry and help you decide on a goal to work towards.

How it works
Each topic is broken down into several different emails. No one wants to sit and read one huge email! This way the information we send is broken down into manageable chunks. Some weeks will teach you working processes, some technical skills, others will share creative blog sites and loads more.
The idea is for you to learn, stay inspired and discover free assets!
