Earlier in this semester we had a presentation by Lise Brian of The Chase agency.
The presentation itself was massively helpful, Lise gave us great advice on how to get in touch with art directors and other commissioning clients and how to best organise meetings with them. She also gave us great tips on our portfolio's, both physical and in PDF format. She then took us through our portfolio's one to one, and again gave us some brilliant advice and very nice, confidence boosting comments. This was my first contact with a commissioning client and one I won't forget as I was on a confidence high after speaking with Lise.
