Artworker briefs

    Hi all,

    I'm currently studying to be an artworker/print producer and I'm looking for some work to practice with.

    If there are any "creatives" who want work producing or have any old briefs and if so would it be possible for me to have them to practice with?

    On another note, if there isnt any work available here do you think I could go to Graphic Design companys and ask them for old briefs?

    Hopefully this makes some sort of sense

    Thanks

    Rob

    D&AD is a great place to get live briefs.

    Folder cutter guides were always something an old company used to test people on. Would be worth practicing these - and cutter guides in general.

    Is D&AD relevant for an Artworker?

    I've been having a quick dig around and I can't seem to find them anywhere. They'd be fairly useful for the OP.

    EDIT: Yeah, actually, I thought there was a print section, but there's not. So, nevermind. Interesting nonetheless.

    There's a lot of illustration briefs :S are the two very different? *ignorant moment*

    Well a typical job for an artworker would be to take a low-res design/scamp from a designer/art director and turn it into print ready artwork. So I guess you could take some of the designs from D&AD and then go from there?

    Yea I would tend to agree with that, a lot of them that I can see are from a creative point of view, but i'll see what I can find to work on.

    Thanks for all the advice though, and djb thanks for the cutter advice, I'll make a note of that in my journal to look into :)
