I started my internship at Bookstr on the date of Tuesday, September 11, 2018. Bookstr a social media company reaching out to readers with special updates on the latest books publish and simply readers who love to read. Additionally, broadcasting Facebook Lives interviewing famous or soon to be authors for viewers to reach out and ask questions. And also sharing famous author quotes for readers to share with family and friends. The office is located in the borough of Manhattan in the Helmsley Building 230 Park Ave across from the MetLife Building at Grand Central Terminal. The office space is divided into 3 companies which are Clearview, Bold and of course Bookstr. The office also includes a kitchen and several private rooms for conferences, and of course a green room where the Lives are broadcasted.
At Bookstr I am part of the Graphic design team and with my Supervisor Scott in which he assigns my projects of the day and also advises me in my designs. My designs at Bookstr consist of creating graphics for social media like Instagram and Facebook, promotional graphics for Facebook lives, on-screen graphics for videos, and graphics and layout presentations.
The working environment is very friendly also comfortable. The location is near many places for lunch which is a great asset when finding what to eat for lunch hour. Besides graphic design interns we also have editorial interns as well as video editors, and social networking interns it’s a great team to work with and each day I learn something new at Bookstr.
