UAL Enterprise Week: The Business of Illustration & Animation Q&A

After the success of our Business of Illustration Q&A at New Designers this year, we are pleased to announce that we are doing another panel discussion at London College of Communication on Monday 16th November. In collaboration with Own-it, a service of the University of Arts London(UAL) Careers and Employability, and the Association of Illustrators we have put together a panel consisting of a diverse range of experts to share their experiences and provide practical tips for illustration and animation students who want to start a freelance career. For Creative Enterprise Week, students from LCC, Central Saint Martins and Camberwell College of Arts will be given a unique insight into the various industry sectors that commission illustration and animation, the commissioning process, a basic understanding of contracts and the importance of protecting their copyright.
