Only Being a day or so away we thought we would give Yarron Frauenfelder, graphic designer at Neu, the Square One treatment.
Square One looks at what it’s like to start fresh. Weather it be in Art, Film, Music, Events or whatever, we’re interested to find out about the drawbacks and advantages faced early on by someone working in the creative industries.
Yarron has kindly sat down to answer our questions. He has also very kindly put together a crisp looking motion graphic just for the event!!!
