Adventures of a graphic design placement student: Day 2

18 03 2008

It is day 2 of the three week work placement with Creativtypes in the LCB depot of Leicester, and I do have to say I am enjoying it immensely. Yesterday was wicked because I got to work on a live logo pitch, doing four logos in an afternoon, which is much much faster than I’m used to! Hope they were alright, fingers crossed. Still really nervous about my illustrator, photoshop and design skills.

Today was a tour of a printers where I saw litho printing and loads of other different things like laser cutting going on, it was amazing. I’ve never seen a printers before, as silly as that sounds, so I had no idea what it would look like. It was wicked.

Overall, I am really happy here at the moment but having to come home and immediately start on dissertation and live project is really draining. I also have to work on the wakeupmakeup brief but I don’t know if I’m on the right track so am waiting for the nod to carry on and finalise things. Wakeupmakeup has felt the most difficult so far, maybe because it is a format I am really not used to. I’ve never done multimedia before so I’m having a jolly good bash at it! Wooooohooooo!
