Kate Moross make your own luck

Grab some insights into the wonderful world of Kate Moross with her new book

London based designer Kate Moross (opens in new tab) definitely made her own luck. A true success story, Moross started off designing her school magazine and creating album artwork for her favourite bands on MySpace. There's plenty of ways to get a career in graphic design (opens in new tab) but it's Moross' hard work and knocking on all the right doors that has allowed her to boast a client list that includes Google, Adidas and Nokia.

Published by Prestel (opens in new tab), 'Make Your Own Luck (opens in new tab): A DIY Attitude to Graphic Design & Illustration' is her first book and is packed with tips, tricks and inspirations for new designers. To celebrate the launch, Moross is hosting her debut solo exhibition at The Cob Gallery (opens in new tab) in London.

Running from April 14 to 24, it will features talks on freelancing tips and making music videos as well as a showcase of original illustrations, designs and works-in-progress. A brilliant opportunity for upcoming and aspirational designers to get inspired.
