Flipside is designed for young people with a keen interest in building a career in digital design. It aims to help you get the skills, mindset and behaviours you’ll need to break into the industry.
Career progression is the main driving force behind Flipside. It was designed by A New Direction, who run the Good Growth Hub, in collaboration with digital design industry leaders Bynd, Made by Many, Sennep, The Skills Lab, and ustwo.
Flipside is a six-month paid placement. For the first half, you’ll go through industry-designed training to get you up to speed with the digital product design world. You’ll also build your portfolio by completing a live brief set by Farfetch, a global platform for luxury fashion. After your training, you’ll transition into a junior role where you’ll put your new skills to practice.
The 2021 programme was delivered as part of the government’s Kickstart Scheme.
