Es Devlin didn’t design stages for Kanye West or U2 or Beyonce because she applied on Indeed.com. No, she was sought after because of her reputation. Because of her body of work.
How did she develop this type of following? How does anyone become a stage designer for the biggest acts in the world?
Like all of us, she started small. Eventually, she won an award and got some recognition for the incredible, generous work. She built trust and attention with every interaction.
And then, she got to do it again. Over time, a little bigger.
You don’t apply for your dream job, you create it.
