Pro Con 3 - Creative Concern Internship - Tuesday Day 7
Today didn’t start completely to plan, for starters disaster stuck when the office had ran outta milk then when I turned on my mac it tried to open every programme for some reason.. So whilst my mac was still forcing all these programs to quit I thought it best to run out and do a milk run.
Once the Mac had finally sorted it self out, I had to make final amendments to the newsletter I designed for river side, only small details like adding in more copy and rearranging a few things.
Then It came to print it out, which was really interesting learning about Jpegs and whats best to make something web ready and print ready.
We then sent them off to the printers, who really awesomely will to a last check for us before showing us the final print and printing it.
By this time it was dinner time, and whilst I usually stay by my desk cracking on with more work and eating cheese ham & branston sandwiches I unfortunately saw that the bread was mouldy. Gutting.
So for the first time in my 7 days at creative concern I ran to Tesco for lunch.
In the afternoon I was able to work a case study for Asda, which again was fascinating as I was able to glance at the brand guidelines that they set, and which colours mean what.
They even had their own “Logo Graveyard” which sounded awesome.
Between doing this case study I was actively looking in a seeing what the rest of the team had on too, Liz was working on a project for a famous writer from the Victorian ages and was looking at modernising victorian type which was interesting.
