Silver Stage Success by Jess Duff, John Spence Community High School
Usually on a Monday morning you don’t want to leave the warm bed where all your comforts are. Today was different. Arriving at school a whole 10 minutes early (I know! It’s shocking), I was smiling.
When I arrived at the Northern Design Centre in Gateshead I was in absolute awe! Even the doors that I walked in amazed me. Listening to the guest speakers (Tim Wilson from Atomhawk and Alex Davy from Arcus Animation Studios) really made me think about going into the Graphics industry. Alex made me really want to aspire to do amazing and creative stuff. The advice that the speakers gave me has honestly just stuck with me. ‘Do what you love’ is what they said and that’s the best piece of advice they have given me.
Overall the silver stage has been really, really inspiring.
