Organization: MarketVision Gateway June 12 – Aug 12
For this market research company based within Universal Studios in Orlando, I worked as a Graphical Design Intern and was part of a Social Media team whom through a unified efforts of a blogger, website coder, marketing intern, and myself worked on with various projects for the research company. Projects were as follows:
New Website – I was responsible for editing pictures, and managing the general overlay of the site.
New Blog – Using WordPress I was responsible for the design and coordination of colors to match the company standards.
Existing Social Media – I was responsible for managing their Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn pages. New Videos – Using FinalCut Pro, I created a video of interviews. In addition, I created a video of the facilities used by MarketVision for their market research. For this video I was responsible for shooting the clips, editing, and putting together the final product. Due to my efforts on this project, I was actually referred to help advertise the new facilities at Universal in California. I worked with several people at that location via conference calls, and was able to start to put together projects for what they needed.
In addition to these roles, I was given small side jobs from day to day, such as making basic signs to be displayed in various locations, newsletters, and flyers to be distributed throughout the company’s staff.
