Internship Journal 3

The beginning of March has been a lot of juggling assignments. While I finished off the last keep project with AIR, I’ve met two new clients, one of which was another last minute project.

The first was a new client with FC(Faculty Commons) from the scholarship program, CREAR Futuros. My job with them is to create branding with their new existing logo which was created by someone who left FC some time ago. It’s the first time I’ll be doing something like this; working with material from a person I never met before sounds intimidating but it will give me a chance to put my spin into it.

From my meeting with my client I created a contract, helping to have an overview of what we discussed so that we’re on the same page. FC’s guidelines to contracts is that they include a timeline summary, and keep track of when it is updated. Something I will defiantly use for myself with future clients since it’s very effective and flexible.

Lastly I got to work with the African American Studies department, for a promo poster on a film screening of Shirley Chisholm. My client and I were both very excited from what it was about, and she encouraged me to use my skills as an illustrator for it. Because of time constraints my design was fairly simple, but it worked with the large amount of information. My client was very happy with the result and so was I, it’s something I’ll be adding to my portfolio and hopefully I will be able to do more similar work.
