I've started my internship over at Paquin design today. I decided to make daily posts about it to keep an account of my experience and because I'm sure I'll forget things if I don't write them down!
Today went great! The team was very welcoming and easy going. No awkward moments or anything. I'm also very glad because they take me seriously. I did a touristic guide ad for one of their clients in the morning as my first ever real project (or almost first). It sure wasn't a lot of conception but I was very glad that I could put my technical knowledge to the test. Hope I passed! And let's keep it real, it's not always going to be total creative freedom ... actually I expect it to be so very rarely.
I choose some pictures for a magazine in the afternoon. My first real experience with stock images. I think there will be many firsts in the next few weeks. I also started reviewing a project that required some modifications. My first taking over a project done by someone else. I hope I'll be able to meet the client's expectations. This is what all the job is about after all. So for a little while I'll be switching type sizes and change pictures (my second real encounter with stock image ;) ) I find it helps me pay more attention to the impact of type size, choice and characteristics. I guess we never learn before experiancing it first hand!
I can't wait to see what tomorrow will bring!
