Sophie gives a talk to Central St Martins Architecture Students

Sophie was recently invited to give a talk to the first year Architecture students at Central St Martins about her journey within the design industry. The students invited Sophie because they were keen to learn about a designer’s transition from education into the creative industries and to get a better understanding of life after graduation. Touching on some of the more personal rules and ideas Sophie has found to be important in establishing her career, the talk was a valuable exercise all round and helped firm up – out loud – the principles most important to our design studio. To name a few: have idols, hero worship the greats, lay out the framework for your own set of aesthetic rules early on, trust your instincts, catch references and never forget the follow up.
