The Trade Group
May 2016 - Aug 2016 (3 months)
Working for The Trade Group, I was thrown right into client work. Growing immensely as a company, they were consistantly busy, and I got to work on real projects only a couple weeks into the internship. I saw a wide variety of projects ranging from 10x10s to an RFP for Dr. Pepper Snapple Group. It was an amazing experience that developed me greatly as a young designer.
Bemidji State University

Exhibit Design Intern
May 2015 - Aug 2015 (3 months)
Learned about the Skyline company and about a system exhibit house versus a custom house. I observed and worked with along side of: professional exhibit designers, graphic designers, project managers, sales reps, production teams & more. I sat in on client meetings and got to design exhibit booths along side the designer. I learned how Skyline approaches the design process and got to witness all the different jobs that are needed to produce a Skyline booth. Besides designing, I got to experience working on "the floor" and actually building exhibits with my hands while learning all the different systems that Skyline has to offer. This was a great experience and I hope to get a different internship possibly with a custom house to see a different perspective this summer!
