Creating the Perfect Home Office

Posted on 06 Aug, 2019

Whether you work from home, want a dedicated space for extra projects or just a quiet area for the kids to do homework, most of us dream of setting up a home office.

A dedicated home office can transform your work process completely but you do need to put some thought into it. Step away from the rickety computer chair and rusty filing cabinet, you need to make sure you create a space that will not only encourage you to work with a clear mind, but that you will actually enjoy spending time in. That way you are more likely to be more productive, to take care of the space, and to ultimately get the best out of the room.

Less is More

Clutter will make you feel stressed, and if keeping your office tidy becomes too much work, you’ll soon find yourself trying to... Continue reading >

Choosing a Recruitment Company

Posted on 08 Jul, 2019

Working with a recruitment company opens up routes into employment that you might not have been able to access otherwise. Many companies do not advertise their vacancies publicly and prefer to work with a recruiter to find talent. Recruiters also help by matching you up with vacancies that are a good fit, but they go far beyond just finding a job for you to apply for. A skilled recruiter can offer insight into the company culture, help a candidate through the recruitment process and even support the moving process with their knowledge.

How do you choose a recruitment company?

Often, not much consideration is given to selecting a recruitment company, but it’s a decision that needs some thought as there is a lot of variation between recruitment companies and the se... Continue reading >

Pantone Colour of the Year 2019: Living Coral

Posted on 01 Jul, 2019

As designers, we see colour differently. 

While we interact with the world and go about our day, we’re processing and gaining inspiration that we can bring to life in our designs. At Careers in Design we have been looking into how designers stay aware of colour trends and how  they experiment with new colours in their work.

The Pantone colour of 2019 is Living Coral. This is a bright and beautiful shade that is abundant in nature from sand dunes, autumn leaves and flowers to sunsets and of course coral itself. Similar to last year’s Ultra Violet, Living Coral is bursting with character and emotion. It throws back further to 2017’s natural shade of Greenery and draws on a bigger design trend which is taking inspiration from the natural world ar... Continue reading >
