Computer Arts issue 294 cover

What's next? It's the question on many a graduate's mind at the moment. With grad shows being disassembled as quickly as they were set up, for many the next couple of months will be a time of reflection of the last three years, and some sober planning for the future. 

We're here to help with this issue of Computer Arts (opens in new tab)! We explore the realities facing creative graduates in the UK right now, and speak to industry insiders about what steps to take – and why to take them.

And to make the issue's cover as engaging as possible, the cover lines are all hidden! With the help of our cover treatment partners Celloglas (opens in new tab), you can scratch the foil bars off to find out out just exactly what we've got in store this issue (or read below).
