Sara Gärdegård, a designer and creative, shares her experiences of Berghs School of Communications and lots of advice for young people.

Hi I’m Sara Gärdegård. I'm a 25 year old creative & designer from Östersund. Currently junior designer at Universal Music in Stockholm, Sweden. Graduated from Interactive Communication at Berghs School of Communication 2013/14.

Describe your journey to where you are now and how you knew a creative career was for you?

Well I started studying media when I was sixteen, then I also got an interest for graphic design. I never thought that being creative was a job at the time. I always liked to work in Photoshop when I was younger and now when I can do it full time I feel like I mix my hobby with work. In the beginning I didn't think I was good enough so I started studying project management and marketing. After two years I realised that I never got to do the fun things, the things I liked, so that’s why I enrolled at Berghs School of Communications.
