We spoke to art director Alex Dunning about how his career kicked off, his ideas on how students and grads should approach agencies and different ways to land a placement.

Illustrating from an early age, Alex Dunning studied art and after advice from his sister moved across to advertising. Completing the creative advertising course at New Bucks University Alex went onto partner with his copywriting cousin Pete Giblin (his interview coming soon).

"Let your work speak for itself."

Together as a creative partnership they have produced some outstanding work during their time at Weapon7 including a Facebook app for Penguin Books, a Mercedes-Benz viral called ‘The Catch’ and the Citygolf app to celebrate Mercedes-Benz’s sponsorship of the British Open 2012.
