I finished my 3 month internship at The Studio 4 (design agency) today. I’ve basically been working non-stop, posting blogs, writing SEO reports, designing logos, editing photos, laying out pages, writing editorials, illustrating bits and bobs - everything. Here’s something I did today for the company’s 2012 Christmas e-bulletin.
Working at a design agency has taught me a number of things:
1) Everyone always expects you to do everything at once.
2) Everything will only take you ‘5 or so minutes’ according to your manager
3) Clients are idiots.
To be honest, it was a great experience. I loved the people I worked with, and I got a lot of illustrations and designs accepted/published, so it’s helped me with my faith in myself, and it’s also make me work a LOT faster.
