An invaluable experience, over the six months of working there great improvements were seen in my sketching, rendering and design communication skills. During the placement I worked on live projects with large scale OEMs and one of my designs was presented as a design proposal for the client.
Design Department Assistant
Martinshouse Design and Marketing
2001 - 2001
Whilst still at High School I undertook a short placement in a local marketing and graphic design company which was a great insight into how design businesses run and my first experience of design in the real world. Watching a professional Graphic designer working gave me the chance to learn about publishing software, composition, printing and binding. I was then given my own project brief which I planned, researched and designed.
