So that’s me over half way through my placement already, in fact I have just one more week left! It is really good to experience life in the studio - witnessing the behind the scenes of the finished piece that the public sees.
Seeing how issues with certain projects can be resolved and the meetings with clients that start everything off. It has been really interesting to watch the brainstorming sessions that happen in the studio, witnessing the creation of ideas and how they are taken to the next stage. Also the review of projects during the process, hearing the critical evaluations of their work helps me in the judgement of my own.
I have been studying graphic design but there are many different aspects of this career that you can’t learn in the classroom. That’s why I’m really glad to of gone down the placement route, it better prepares me for the working world; of course this is mainly down to ‘Gina’s Genius’… More to be revealed.
