An exhilarating, fascinating and eye-opening journey with two of our most inspirational creatives.

Lolita and Adrian don't shy away from documenting the reality of our profession the endless multi-tasking, the long unpaid hours, and the peaks and troughs of generating your own work and being a creative-for-hire.
