Extracurricular with Vicky Carr
Great advice for final year creative students from the Textbook Studio co-founder
If you’re a final-year creative student, it’s fair to say that the last few weeks have turned your world upside down. What would usually be the final term of your studies, the culmination of three or more years of work have been disrupted in a way that seemed unimaginable.
In the face of adversity though, we have to adapt. We’re launching Extracurricular to provide a brief, insightful talk from an industry professional every Wednesday at 1pm. We hope that through this project we can provide support, encouragement, motivation, insight and advice.
To get the ball rolling, we couldn’t think of anyone better than the brilliant Vicky Carr. A graphic designer and educator of the highest order, she’s co-founder of Textbook Studio and a great sounding board for your submission, portfolio and final major project questions.
Here’s the episode in full. We hope that you enjoy it.

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.
