Since 2008, ShellsuitZombie has been on a mission to bridge the gap between young creatives and established professionals through workshops, talks, parties, exhibitions, a blog and our print magazine.
There’s no rulebook for “how to make it in the creative industry”, and anyone claiming to have written one is full of shit. There’s no right or wrong way of doing anything. You’ve heard it a million times before, but the only way you’ll ever get where you want to go is by trying and learning. Even people at the top of their game had to make it up as they went along. Chances are they’re still making it up right now.
Our sixth issue explores what it means to try, succeed, fail, laugh, cry, have an existential crisis or two and then figure out what just happened. We take an honest look at the uncertainty and disillusionment many face in the early stages of a creative career, as well as the learning experiences and self-discovery we go through in pursuit of that ‘dream job.'
Articles and interviews include Pentagram partner Naresh Ramchandani, Well Made Studio, Off Life Magazine, Kate Moross and the founders of ShellsuitZombie, alongside original illustrations from the likes of Alex Gamsu Jenkins, Thomas Hedger, Alice Bowsher and many more.
