Two week placement with experiential marketing agency RPM. A great insight into the pace and atmosphere of a well established agency, as well as into the level of professionalism in their work and presentation. Additionally, worked on a number of different briefs, developing logos and layouts for different brands and an event.
Volunteer Graphic Designer
Working with an MA Student from Salford Univeristy to create designs quickly in response to the needs of the festival director and marketing department. Tasks included creating ads of different sizes, a cover for the festivals brochure, promotional flyers and different elements for social media websites.
Fortnightly mentoring position helping Manchester Creative & Media Academy students develop design skills in response to a brief outlined by McCann Manchester to produce a creative online magazine designed and run by students. I was able to pass on skills and knowledge to four young aspiring designers, an experience which I know is invaluable at that age. It was an exciting project that I would happily help with again.
2-day work placement assisting camera crew on the set of two separate music videos. Both videos were directed by Emil Nava. The first shoot was for the artist L Griffin and his music video 'The Wait'. The video was shot in East London in a warehouse where the art department had designed and set up a backdrop for the video. I helped bring in and set up the equipment. For the majority of the day I assisted the camera crew and occasionally the production crew. The second shoot was for singer Delilah's video for 'Love You So' where my role was similar to the first shoot. An insight to this working environment was very interesting and exciting, and is something I would really love to get more involved in.
