The Hothouse talks showcase industry professionals from across design and illustration Friday’s HotHouse talk was with Sarah Boris.

Sarah Boris is an award winning graphic designer, art director and artist based in London running her design practise. She was Associate Art Director at Phaidon Press until February 2015.

Sarah Boris spoke about how she got her first jobs after graduating with the Barbican as part if their ‘in-house’ design team as a junior graphic designer. She had originally applied to the Barbican for an internship but heard nothing back and assumed she had lost out. Weeks later a position for the junior graphic designer came available and Sarah created a whole new application and, with a bit of persistence, was given the job! From there Sarah Boris’s career has gone from strength to Strength.
