Shout Out to Help Out, vol.2

#ShoutOuttoHelpOut is an effort to help graduates and anyone whose been made redundant get their work seen by as many people as possible. This is volume 2 of all those featured so far.

Having finished their degree, remotely, probably at their parents house, in a room that was once theres, no parties, no graduation balls, no degree shows. They’ve graduated in to whatever fucking mess this is. Can you imagine? No, me either, so I am trying to help, #ShoutOuttoHelpOut is here to feature graduates of 2020.

These are the graduates from New Zealand, Holland, New York, Canada, LA, Belgium and the UK — who contacted me through #ShoutOuttoHelpOut. I am posting their work on Linkedin (here, here and here), Twitter and Facebook. Helping get their work seen by as many people in the industry as possible. (more information at the bottom of this article)

Graduates — send me your link, I’ll do the rest. You can email me or add me to Linkedin and send there.

They’ve plenty of experience working at Arc Publicis London, Portas London, Weber Shandwick London, Revolt London and The & Partnership London.

D&Ad New Blood 2020 Pencil Winners too!

#ShoutOuttoHelpOut Joe Garrett, a graphic designer and a recent 2020 graduate of the University of Lincoln, based in the south-east. Joe loves working on self-initiated projects alongside client projects. Particularly liked his ‘Away with the fairies’ but then I’m a nut for typography and print. Smell that ink!

Inspired by Georges Perec’s ‘An Attempt at Exhausting a Place in Paris’– Away with the Fairies is a typographical documentation of background noise distractions.

Aware that the graduates who were contacting me weren’t doing the usual job hunt, they’re worried, lost and wondering what the fuck to do. I decided to use a pun on #EatOuttoHelpOut and start #ShoutOuttoHelpOut — the least I could try to do for the graduates of 2020.

So to try to help I offered anyone who contacted me on Linkedin with a link to their website I would share their work to my social feeds and add their work to the comments section of the original post:

Design and brand consultant. Insight. Ideas. Creative director. Father. Brother. F1 fan. Dry Martini, stirred, with a twist. Owner of Plan-B Studio.
