After hosting an advertising portfolio masterclass, Pip Jamieson, founder and CEO of professional creative community The Dots, asked some of the leading creative minds to give advice on standing out from the creative crowd.

Following this search for passionate, brave people with their original ideas we hear about keeping it simple, doing research and being strategic to communicate ideas.
