Get started with big clients

Working for big brands means better commissions, bigger budgets and greater challenges for designers. "It's why we're all in the business," says Alistair Sim, managing director at design agency, LOVE. "Everyone wants to do the best work they possibly can." A brand with a story to tell and a budget to match is what makes that happen.

Sure, you start off at the bottom, but even from the depths of the copyshop you can look up and see the neon shine of the latest Coke ad, or feel the backdraft of a passing Nike swoosh. Affirmation of your worth is at least partly what drives the desire to work for the big names. "There's loads of personal satisfaction involved," says Sim. "It's rewarding to know you're doing great work for great clients."
