During the summer of 2019, students from the Bachelor of Fine Arts program are employed by a design firm via a ten week internship program. Here they learn the ins and outs of how a design firm functions learning critical pitch, feedback, and professional skills.
I wanted the viewer to learn something new by reading it.
My goal was to capture this experience holistically. I reflected on my experience and remembered my challenges and how I overcame them. Those intitial challenges and successes reminded me how systems can initally be hard to learn but easy once figured out. I designed my Intern Stories packet to physically create that feeling of learning new systems and the journey I went through. This led me to create a distorted narrative where the reader must learn a new way to read.
I combined Indigo Slate's and the Bachelor of Fine Art's brand colors to form the gradient.
Opening this presents a unique experience that requires the user to engage with my work critically.
This opportuntity allowed me to develop my design skills and work with some amazing peers. Throughout this experience, I worked for the likes of Microsoft, Staples, and ABC News. Various media includes email templates, persona posters, and conference gift boxes.
Thank you Indigo Slate.
