This is not an interview — DA x SOUTH
Design Assembly collaborated with Studio South to deliver This is not an interview — Conversations on Studio Life; a panel discussion event for design students (and educators) on entering the industry.
Featuring Design Leaders:
Caroline Powley, Design Educator (Convenor)
Sam Southwell, Creative Director, Studio South
Phoebe Ellis, Design Lead, Previously Unavailable

The panel shared real industry stories, insight into their process and honest dialogue around what the business looks like for students engaging with studios.
Following the evening, students were asked to reflect on what they learnt, with some students provided with one-to-one sessions to see first hand the working day to day life of the fast-paced studios.
