I Just Got My First Graphic Design Job - How To Make A Portfolio & Be A Self Taught Graphic Designer
 
03:24
This is how I got my first ever graphic design job. I''m a self-taught graphic designer who has proven you can teach yourself graphic design, make a portfolio, apply for job interviews, and eventually get your first job. I started this journey 1 year ago, and this video has some little highlights from then until now, to show you what it actually took to change my entire career direction for the better and become a designer. I really hope this is in some way helpful to people who are feeling like their goals are impossible. I felt like I could never become a graphic designer but after consistent hard work and perseverance, I've somehow managed to pull it off, I've just finished my 2nd week on the job and I still can't quite believe it. As always, I wanna hear your thoughts and what your situation is like.

I briefly talk through my first proper graphic design portfolio that I'm taking to 'junior designer' job interviews. Do you need a degree to become a graphic designer? I'm figuring that out. I'm a self-taught graphic designer who has created their first design portfolio without going to university. I will be doing these little portfolio presentations on a regular basis to show you how my work progresses over time.

Graphic Design Interview Questions
 
10:09
Here I discuss some graphic design interview questions, 8 to be exact. Preparation is the key to having a successful interview when applying for graphic design jobs and if you have some idea of what they're gonna ask you beforehand, you can prepare some good answers. Once you feel comfortable enough to know what you're going to say, you can focus on just coming across well and being friendly. Interviews are one of those things where you'll only get better through repetition. So get out there and get those bad interviews out of the way! – See some stuff I made on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/ceklewis/ Chat to me on Twitter https://twitter.com/ceklewis – Music is ‘Modules’ by J Juva https://soundcloud.com/jjuva/52-beats-024-modules

My Old Logos & Websites - Personal branding for graphic designers and illustrators
 
06:17
Personal branding is pretty essential when you're a graphic designer or illustrator, especially after graduation. This means creating a logo, building a website, and growing your social media. After graduation from illustration or graphic design you need to make an impact online and get people's attention, both with your work and your personality. If you do a good job at it, and grow yourself a decent little brand, then it can give you an extra little bit of experience that the competition might not have! – This video is sponsored by .SPACE domain names.

06:54
To teach yourself graphic design, books are a really useful learning resource. To become a self taught graphic designer, you need all the help you can get, and design books are full of the stuff you missed out on by not going to university.

This video goes through a small selection of my graphic design book collection to give you a few recommendations of some cool learning resources that i think will help you massively if you're trying to do this on your own. Let me know if you have any cool design books or creative books, or even just general motivational books that have helped you on your journey. Or even online stuff! I'm not fussy.

a tour of my desk setup for graphic design and illustration
 
07:33
This is a tour of my desk setup that i use for graphic design and illustration. I'm so nosey and, especially if it's a graphic designer or illustrator, i always want to see where someone works. If I could have a tour of any designer or illustrator's desk setup, omg it would be a long list. Basically this is a super detailed look into what i keep on my desk, what i use to help me create designs and illustrations. Some of it I've had for years, some is new. Some is expensive, some is cheap. Even though this stuff is very useful for creatives, it is not needed! Don't worry if you can't afford any of it. What's important is your ideas and your willpower to get things done. Use pen and paper, use an old camera, use your phone. There's always a way to give life to your ideas, money shouldn't stand in the way. You're creative right? So be creative! – // MUSIC // The Halfway Kid - 'Saying Nothing' https://soundcloud.com/halfwaykid – // MY LINKS // https://www.twitter.com/ceklewis https://www.instagram.com/ceklewis/ http://www.charlie-lewis.com – // PRODUCTS FEATURED (IN ORDER OF APPEARANCE) // iMac (similar) US http://amzn.to/2uZJExW UK http://amzn.to/2uZ38D2 Orange lacie rugged 500gb SSD hard drive US http://amzn.to/2uZtAwg UK http://amzn.to/2vw0UfK Cloud amiibo US http://amzn.to/2u750uD UK http://amzn.to/2umqEGG Link amiibo US http://amzn.to/2uZdu5Z UK http://amzn.to/2vvTGID Bokoblin amiibo US http://amzn.to/2fb1WqD UK http://amzn.to/2vvJm3w Harmon kardon sound sticks iii speakers US http://amzn.to/2v1Q1j2 UK http://amzn.to/2umMbis wooden dock for phone & watch US http://amzn.to/2vw70gr UK http://amzn.to/2uZh6VH iPhone 7 plus, 128gb, matte black US http://amzn.to/2vm0HLI UK http://amzn.to/2un8xAp Ikea round lamp US http://amzn.to/2w9WYhM UK http://amzn.to/2v2jxVE Wario amiibo US http://amzn.to/2v2kkpE UK http://amzn.to/2vs57k3 Toad amiibo US http://amzn.to/2u71IaP UK http://amzn.to/2uZ5wcN Waluigi amiibo US http://amzn.to/2v2aT9u UK http://amzn.to/2vvPzMI PS Vita US http://amzn.to/2v2vnz5 UK http://amzn.to/2un97OE beatsX headphones US http://amzn.to/2uZYyEz UK http://amzn.to/2v2n1Y8 iPad Pro 12.9 inch US http://amzn.to/2fboPKz UK http://amzn.to/2u3UWOR LG blu-ray drive US http://amzn.to/2fbo8RJ UK http://amzn.to/2vvKzIh Apple Pencil US http://amzn.to/2v1Jdll UK http://amzn.to/2vvJL62 tiny sketchbook US http://amzn.to/2w9neZZ UK http://amzn.to/2vvKEvn Big fat posca pen US http://amzn.to/2u7dIsY UK http://amzn.to/2uZDxtE Bendy tripod US http://amzn.to/2v27jwo UK http://amzn.to/2vvBaAl White minimal watch US http://amzn.to/2hqEmH4 UK http://amzn.to/2uZmiJ9 Little Sony camera US http://amzn.to/2u6zP2L UK http://amzn.to/2vrPpVQ Fingerboard http://www.berlinwood.com

Should designers learn to code? Yes, right now.
 
07:59
'Should designers learn to code' is such an old question it's boring at this point. Of course they should! If you want to stand out and have a better shot at getting your first job in graphic design/UI design, then of course it helps if you know some HTML, CSS & Javascript. Especially if you want to become a versatile web designer, a little knowledge of front-end development is handy. If you're interested in a career in design. Whether thats graphic designer, UI designer, visual designer, whatever you wanna call it. Having some knowledge of code can only help you. This is particularly true for all the graphic design students who watch my channel. Right now, most designers can't code. Soon, that will change. And you have to make sure you aren't left behind. I've always wanted to teach myself to code and to give myself a kickstart I've started the SuperHi foundation course in HTML, CSS & JavaScript. (not sponsored, i just love the course) This is a series. I'm gonna be updating you on my progress and we'll even do some livestream 'code with me' type videos when I'm building some of my own sites in a few weeks. Obviously I think coding is the future, but what do you think? Am I simplifying this too much? Is there still room for non-coding designers? – Links – The FREE 7 day email taster course... https://www.superhi.com/first-steps-to-learning-to-code The online course I'm doing... https://www.superhi.com/courses/html-css-javascript-foundation The book that got me interested in them... https://www.superhi.com/learn-to-code-now-book Cheers, Charlie ––– Music is...

Life After Art School

Life after art school can be rough. More of a sombre tone to this video than usual. Honestly I struggled with working life after graduating from university. This video is a very brief explanation of my postgrad work-life experience in the difficult years following graduation. I appreciate it's a hard and confusing time for a lot of people and, as someone who has come out the other side, hopefully I can offer some comfort in showing you it was a difficult time for me too. Gosh this was not very fun to make. More normal positive content next week.

Design along with me and watch my creative workflow of ideas as I create a little something for social media, specifically my instagram 'portfolio'. I'm shameless, I use a lot of hashtags. I’m a self-taught graphic designer so my process is not going to be what you get taught as a graphic design student. Oh well, this is just how I do things. I want to bring you loads and loads of these. Because my process is different for every instagram piece I make. This is the first of many. I’m trying out lots of different types of content at the moment and I’m sure it’s all going to be a bit rough around the edges for a while. But stick with me because the polish will come, and this is just the beginning for this channel.

Grow Social Media As A Graphic Designer | 4 New Year Resolutions for 2017
 
06:38
In 2017 I have 4 New Year Resolutions - all part of a creative strategy to grow my social media following and developing as a graphic designer. Having a strong online presence is super important as a creative. Thats why in 2017 I've made my resolutions all focus around growing my social media channels, to help my career as a graphic designer. My first resolution is to post to Twitter every day (http://www.twitter.com/ceklewis). I've used Twitter in the past but have never felt like I was doing it properly, and recently I've let it die completely. So I've deleted all my tweets and had a rethink of how I want to use it. I'd like to turn it into a bit of a mini-blog so you guys can keep updated on what I'm up to day-to-day, mixed with a bit of a conversational tool to go along with the comments sections of my videos. Second resolution, Instagram every other day (http://www.instagram.com/ceklewis). I've done this for a while and I'm loving it. I set aside a few hours per week to bang out a few images, then stagger them throughout my feed across the next couple of weeks. It's a great way to just get some experimenting done and push yourself outside of your comfort zone without it being too much of a timesuck. Third resolution, YouTube! I'm going to be posting a new video every 2 weeks. I've loved doing them recently, especially since discovering there are so many of us aspiring creatives out there. They are a lot of work, but if you can help me out and offer some video suggestions I would be eternally grateful. Fourth resolution, the only one not social media related, but still design-related, JOBS! I'm applying to 5 a week. I don't want to send out a million applications to hear nothing back but I'd like to take more time to be thoughtful with individually written emails. I've found in the past that it's a much better use of your time. Quality over quantity! Let me know in the comments what productive plans you have for 2017. Maybe you'll inspire someone to follow suit! Follow me: http://www.twitter.com/ceklewis http://www.instagram.com/ceklewis

INSIDE my first 2018 sketchbook – Bad drawings #1
 
03:28
I take you on a tour of my first 2018 sketchbook as a graphic designer and illustrator. Showing someone the inside of a sketchbook is quite a scary thing to do. If you're a student of graphic design, illustration or even art then you know how personal it can be. Normally I wouldn't suggest showing too many people what you do in yours, because it SHOULD be private, but I wanna help out anyone who is struggling with this side of the creative process and also build a little of my own confidence when showing my creative work. If you liked this video, I'm doing more of them. This is just a start but subscribe to the channel as I'll be making this a regular feature on here. Starting off with small sketchbooks like these and moving onto bigger ones. Comment down below and tell me what you think of sketchbooks, should designers keep them?

Should graphic designers be able to draw? : Draw With Me
 
04:27
I love drawing, sketching, doodling, whatever you wanna call it. A lot of beginners ask if graphic designers need drawing skills, I don't think so but it's a useful skill to have. It can only help your graphic design portfolio if you're able to sketch a little bit. So don't worry, you can still be a graphic designer without any drawing skills, it is just a major bonus, and i think even if you don't think you can draw, you can still produce something interesting!

Graphic Design Portfolio Tour: From student to getting your first job
 
08:52
Making your first graphic design portfolio and getting your first graphic design job can be a scary task. To help you I'm giving a tour inside my friend Tom's student portfolio that he used to interview and get his first job to become a graphic designer. This is for all you self-taught designers out there who feel a bit lost and in a bubble. Here's an example of a graphic design portfolio to help you gain some confidence and see the variety of portfolios out there. Tom also goes through his story from graduating university with a degree in Graphic Design in 2013, but not getting his first design job until 2015. So it still took him 2 years to find his place in the industry, even though he was a student of design and did everything the 'right' way. Perseverance and confidence in your ideas and yourself, that's what is key. Comment down below and tell me what you think of this format? It's my first attempt at a collab so I've got a lot to learn, it's way harder to edit a conversation between two people! But I enjoyed this. Major thanks to Tom for showing his brilliant work, sitting in front of my camera and talking for ages.

Graphic Design Goals / My First Tattoo
 
06:57
How To Set & Achieve Goals In Graphic Design... I talk about how I recently set a goal, and was able to achieve it, in my graphic design career. Learning how to stay motivated is hard, and I ended up resorting to drastic measures by getting my first tattoo. - I previously made a vlog about how I wasn't happy with my career and that I wanted to become a graphic designer. I gave myself a 6 month deadline to create my first portfolio and send my first job application. After the initial buzz I found this was harder than I thought. I started to lose motivation, until I made a physical commitment and ended up with my first tattoo. Kind of crazy but from that point on I was incredibly motivated to achieve the 6 month goal I'd set for myself. I stayed on track and thanks to a tip-off from a friend, I recently took the very first step in my graphic design career. - LINKS I TALK ABOUT...

Advice For Graphic Design Students (20K subscriber Q&A)
 
30:47
In this Q&A I try to offer some advice for all the graphic design students/beginners out there. If you're self-taught, if you're just starting out, you're in good company. Even as a professional graphic designer, I feel like I'm still a student of design myself, but I have learnt a few things along my journey so far. Hopefully it's of some help to you. And lets not forget the reason I'm doing this Q&A: you wonderful people have helped me reach 20,000 subscribers! I'm so grateful and it still blows my mind to think that many people care about these videos I make in my bedroom. I'll keep making them if you keep watching them. See you for the next Q&A at 30K. – Links – Instagram… https://www.instagram.com/ceklewis Twitter… https://www.twitter.com/ceklewis Cheers, Charlie ––––––– Music is... ‘Clips’ by J.

Tech For A Graphic Designer
 
22:43
I run through what I think is the best tech for a graphic designer. If you're going to do graphic design, then having the right hardware, tools & technology will really help you out. It doesn't need to be expensive, you can get cheaper versions of all this stuff. But this is what I personally use. I know I'm very lucky and don't want to come across as bragging or ungrateful as these types of videos can often be. My channel is all about how to become a graphic designer, illustrator, and creative person in general. I want this to be a series where I take you through all the tech bits and bobs that I use for each type of work I do. This episode is about graphic design, but there will be others focusing on things like illustration, YouTube, and general productivity/organisation.

Drawing on iPad Pro
 
10:02
I've always wanted to use my ipad pro for drawing, and I've finally got the hang of it. (Drawing on iPad Pro 2018) I used to be an illustrator, I still kind of am, but I haven't done an illustration commission in years. I've been so focused on breaking into the graphic design world that I have left my roots behind. Now I miss it. I wanna get back into illustration, since it seems a waste to let my skills fade away, so I'm building an entirely new illustration portfolio from scratch. – Links – Instagram… https://www.instagram.com/ceklewis Twitter… https://www.twitter.com/ceklewis Cheers, Charlie ––––––– Music is... ‘Clips’ by J.

I failed my new year's resolutions as a graphic designer.
 
07:08
i made some creative new year's resolutions all to do with growing my social media and advancing in my graphic design career, and if i'm being strict, i failed all of them. but i still did a hell of a lot of creative stuff this year so yknow, like kanye said, 'reach for the stars so if you fall you land on a cloud'. Lol. my resolutions were : 1. post to twitter every day 2. post to instagram every other day 3. post to youtube every other week 4. apply for a graphic design job every weekday i sort of completed 3 out of 4 (sorry youtube). but i didn't do them consistently. so i kinda failed but kinda didn't. i have a cool job and a much bigger social following now though so in a way i succeeded... wow i'm rambling, anyway, if you wanna follow me on any of the mentioned socials then...

12:19
In this review I try to answer something i was asking for ages: Should i get an ipad pro? Can i use it as a portfolio? Is it good for graphic design, art and illustration work? For artists? Well, luckily, I'm a graphic designer and illustrator, and i have an ipad pro! I can't tell you if you should buy an ipad pro, but i can tell you about my experience with it so far. It's got a lot of pros and a few cons. I also chat about a few of my favourite accessories and apps. I'm not a tech reviewers so apologies if this isn't as detailed as you'd like, but I'm just giving you my experience with it so far, as someone who does a lot of graphic design, drawing, illustration etc. – // MUSIC // The Halfway Kid - 'Peach Room' https://soundcloud.com/halfwaykid – // PRODUCTS FEATURED (IN ORDER OF APPEARANCE) // iPad Pro 32gb wi-fi UK http://amzn.to/2xlsf4v US http://amzn.to/2wWZVpy Apple Pencil UK http://amzn.to/2h2C8Ox US http://amzn.to/2f6yi6b Smart Cover UK http://amzn.to/2vV0KeK US http://amzn.to/2y7cpsk Logi Base UK http://amzn.to/2eVVtN3 US http://amzn.to/2eWy6my Procreate app http://procreate.art Todoist app http://todoist.com – // MY LINKS // https://www.twitter.com/ceklewis https://www.instagram.com/ceklewis/ http://www.charlie-lewis.com

i'm going weekly on youtube, hi
 
03:29
Going weekly (making consistent weekly videos) on YouTube has been a goal for what seems like forever. But I've always struggled to think of video ideas and had trouble committing to it when i had more 'important' things to focus on. Well, now I've achieved a few life goals, I want to make this the next one. This is me starting to make this a proper YouTube channel. I'm creating weekly videos on YouTube, from now until, I dunno, quite a while I guess. See ya next week.
