In order for employees to know what is right or what is wrong in the workplace they must follow the standards that is business ethics. For the logos that were used in my designs,  I was given a guideline to follow to keep the look and theme of the company consistent.  In no way should I have changed the color or the style of the logo as it was not my place to do so.  Every design that I’ve done all flowed together because I used the logo I was required to use but also using the color palette that was in the guideline as well.

To keep company information private and away from the public eye comes in the form of a nondisclosure agreement.  After the employer lays out in writing what the employer should not say outside of their work it will be then up to the employee to uphold to that agreement, if not it can cause a rift between the employer and employee.  As for my internship position, my employer did not require me to sign a nondisclosures agreement.

As I reached 120 hours of my internship, I can say that this experience will be one that I will never forget.  When this course was on my mind 2 years ago the pandemic have not occurred yet and I thought that I was going to be doing internship in person.  However, the world changed and every class was switched to online. Sceptical at first, I hesitated when the course started which became the main factor that lead me to obtaining an internship late within the course.  As stated before with the help of Prof. Nicolaou I was able to obtain the internship position at Unity for Equality.  My experience at the internship was new but I was able to keep the work flowing and achieved 120 hours of my internship in the process.

For my latest task, it was a more flexiable task where I had to choose different photos to represent each article with the theme of things to do while quarantined.  Pexels was a great resource as I was able to find photos that captured the right essence of the theme.  This task wasn’t flexible and easy flowing just because of the task itself but I was able to put myself in this project with everything that happened in 2020, I understood what the mood needed to be in each photo.
