Create a lot of work and build a portfolio that strongly demonstrates your skills and personal style. Don't stop experimenting or trying to improve. Create an online portfolio site. It's the quickest and most convenient way to share your work with a wide audience and is the perfect catalyst to get noticed. Send links of your work to magazines, brands, studios etc. and join online design communities to get that initial ball rolling. It’s all about letting people know that you exist. Try not to let negative feedback or criticism put you off. Instead, aim to prove people wrong by using it to inspire you to get better. "Nikki Farquharson"
