Graphic Designer (Intern)
As part of a university unit I was set to work in a professional environment for a month and this is where I worked for 1 week. I was given the opportunity to shadow everyone in the studio to get a full understanding in designers work in different areas. I worked on a project for Portsmouth city council where I had to pitch several ideas to the Creative Directorfor an advertising campaign to attract people to the city.

Graphic Designer (Intern)
2LK was my second 1 week placement during my time at university. By shadowing everyone in the studio I was allowed to see each stage of their design process. I was given the opportunity to work on a project for HSBC. By observing the brand guidelines I designed and pitched ideas for an exhibition layout.

Typesetter
I spent 3 months working as a freelance typesetter for The Pd Group. My main responsibility was to typeset the film listing leaflets for VUE cinemas. I really valued this experience because it was the first professional studio environment I had worked in and really built my confidence in working as part of a team and in meeting deadlines.
