The typical day here at the office of Visual Communications is always busy. There is a mix of cubicles and office spaces for each employee, and is dependent on your position. The attire is formal to business casual – I always try to dress formally to reflect the company culture. The typical employee day is Monday to Friday from 9am-5pm with an hour of lunch.
The photo below is of my current workspace. I’m required to bring my laptop in each day and sit in a cubicle. I like to have a sketchbook and notebook with me at all times so that I can work things out on paper first. I’m not too far from my supervisor and I’m free to visit him if I have any questions or concerns.
Since I am an intern I work 5 hours each, Monday to Thursday – I was also given the freedom to work after hours from home. I’ll be coding the website for city tech and it’s a lot easier for me to work things out through the night and show my progress the next day. That way we could go over the code and find solutions to any problems I’ve encountered.
So far things have worked out fairly well and I’ve made a lot of progress on the website. It’s interesting to see how my design is evolving and will soon be a live website.
