Dear Ben & Frank
What is the best way to gain exposure as a young designer?

Ben SaysIt was extremely valuable to me that I made friendships early on with older students in the design program. I also met lots of people though our student design club, professional organizations and student conferences. You have to be doing solid work but you also have to get out there and not be afraid to get out there and promote yourself. As far as getting my work out there the internet has been invaluable.
Frank SaysYou do quality work. Meet people, be personable. More than anything, you put your feet to the pavement and get moving. Some people will never believe it, but action is always better than inaction, no matter what the quality of your work.
