Extracurricular with Regular Practice

Talking portfolios, interviews, entering awards and more with co-founder Tom Finn

In our second episode of Extracurricular, we thought it would be great to invite Tom Finn to join us. As the co-founder of Regular Practice, one of the most exciting contemporary graphic design studios in the UK at the moment and having only graduated from his MA a few years ago, Tom had lots of fantastic advice for aspiring designers.

Responding to lots of great questions from the live audience, we discuss interviews, the pros and cons of entering awards and cover some crucial do’s and don’ts when it comes to preparing and sending portfolios. There’s lots and lots of fantastic advice packed into this episode, so be sure to catch up and share below.

TIP: If you want to listen to this episode while you work, you might notice that the video stops when you open a new tab. Instead, open a new browser window and you’re good to go.

Be sure to follow us on Instagram here to take part in our next episode, we’ll be announcing the guest and topic over there very soon.

We started Extracurricular to support final year creative students through the last few weeks of their studies after the global pandemic turned their educational experience upside down. The response we had was so overwhelmingly positive, that we’ve decided to extend the series throughout the summer, helping those newly graduated individuals to stay motivated, inspired and determined to plot their course into a creative career. The series is open to all however and each week you can send questions for our guests via our Instagram stories from Tuesday afternoon. We’ll be live every Wednesday at 1pm UK time, with each episode archived here and in our IGTV for you to catch up with and share any time. Please spread the word and share the videos where you can, we want to support as many new entrants to the industry as possible with this series.
