What next for students?

Posted by Scott


We simply asked students, ‘What next?’, in the 3rd issue of our self-published series; produced as an accompaniment to a project with gallery Beach London.

The question was aimed at graduate illustrators who responded as only they should, pictorially, showing how they plan on getting on in the industry.

In fact the question ‘What next?’ is the sentiment of the book. Specific questions have been posed by each illustrator who in turn asks the next a question.

Questions include, ‘If you could build anything what would you build?, What have you read that has influenced your work?, How do you know when you’ve come up with the right solution?’ Some are more abstract than others and so are the answers.

Time for a change in direction

A little update from us at Fivefootsix. 

The fast pace of running Fivefootsix hasn’t given us much time to stop and properly think about the future. However, celebrating our tenth anniversary this year presented an opportunity to both reflect and to look forward. And, after a hugely exciting journey, we’ve taken the decision to bring our current agency operations to a close, allowing us to end things on a high, and turn our attentions to new challenges ahead.

Although we’re sad to say goodbye to Fivefootsix, we are also incredibly proud of what we’ve been able to achieve in that time, and the calibre of clients we’ve worked with. Brands like BBC Children in Need, Ben & Jerry’s, Birley, UEFA and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), as well as our own projects, like The Art of Ping Pong, which will continue to develop.

Most importantly, the last ten years would not have been possible without the support of the hugely talented Fivefootsix team, both past and present.

Thanks to everyone who’s joined us on the journey and been part of that success. Hopefully we’ll have the chance to work with many of you again in the future.

If you can, please join us for some drinks at The Art of Ping Pong 2015 launch event, on November 5th at 7pm at the KK Outlet in Hoxton.
