This has been a life changing experience for me. Flipside has given me life long skills and different ways of looking at the world of design. My eyes have been open to the design industry and I'm more aware of myself. I learned so much and I'm grateful.
Flipside has enabled me to understand what being in a digital agency really means, working alongside inspiring and continuously evolving companies their mind treasures are something I will carry with me. My fellow flippers have also created a space for enormous strength and support through this process, something I only hoped for when starting this journey.
This experience has been rigorous and thorough providing me with the ability to enhance my soft and hard skills in order to thrive in the digital industry. As well as giving me relevant insight into the processes in which a digital industry undergo.
Through direct exposure to the industry, I have gained an insight into what different roles there are and more importantly, discovered processes that will help me adapt in the ever-changing world of digital.
This experience has provided me with effective practical experience, working with the digital agencies has given me all the necessary tools and support to confidently step into the digital industry.
The best thing i learned from this program how actual agencies work, and even then the agencies themselves are continuously learning and that something you aren't really taught in school/university
This program will guide you and will show you the tools, so you can adapt, communicate and be resilent in complex situations.
Flipside has been an eye opening experience where I have worked with digital agencies across London to develop the skills necessary to succeed in a digital creative enviornment.
The Flipside experience has been a rich and rewarding adventure. Full of personal growth and professional development. With thanks to the continuous guidance provided throughout by the agencies, I feel passionate and determined to be part of this one of a kind industry. I feel empowered as an individual and as part of a group of young creatives. To take our talents and all that has been invested in us to become leaders in this field.
Since being on the programme I have gained much more than I thought I would. I came with the intention of picking up hard skills and learning new softwares and I have, however, greater self awareness is by far a key insight that I will take away from this programme and beyond.
Flipside is great for curious and explorative people who want to get their feet wet in the digital industry.
