Lush Cosmetics

Graphics Intern

During my internship with Lush Cosmetics, I assisted and supported the Graphics team in a variety of projects including creating illustrations for the Lush Times, a quarterly product catalog, creating props for the shops to used during specific product campaigns, designing "Made By..." product stickers featuring the factory staff face vectors, and created window display and in store illustrations for a continent-wide campaign. Working with Lush's graphics teams familiarized me with working in a team-based creative environment & taught me about the 'behind the scenes' aspect of design.
