As part of YCN LIVE, the Young Creatives Network is launching a series of initiatives with a range of agencies, studios and retailers to promote the work of emerging creatives. One such project is the YCN Talent Auction where you can bid for the design skills of six recent design graduates. And as each of their profiles show, there’s a fair amount of talent up for grabs here…
“Six of the most skilled and friendly emerging creatives are available to work on a project of your choosing as part of the YCN LIVE Talent Auction,” say YCN. “Each has been handpicked as a leading up-and-coming practitioner in their field, ready to be briefed and put to work.”
Clicking on each of the graduates’ portraits on the YCN Talent Auction site, you can view a short film about them and check out a few highlights from their portfolios. Bidding takes place between 25 August and 5 September and there will also be a launch event at Village Underground on 27 August.
They six graduates welcoming bids for their talents are:
David Sparshott, a London based illustrator from the University of the West of England.
Hans Lo, a filmmaker who graduated from Camberwell College of Art in graphic design.
Vicky Simmons, who also graduated with a degree in graphic design from Camberwell.
James Chambers, an interaction designer who graduated from the London College of Communication.
Anna Garforth, a graduate from Central Saint Martins.
Shaz Madani, a graphic design graduate from the London College of Communication, whose work also features in our round-up of the best graduate projects from the recent degree shows, in the current issue of CR).
