My time at RO NEW YORK has come to an end but also a new beginning. It has been a very humbling experience working here. I’ve gained a multitude of hands-on experience in the field. This couldn’t have been possible without the support of the team at RO NEW YORK. From this experience, I worked with a team of creative individuals, worked on multiple projects (both individual and collaborative), increased my proficiency in the Adobe Creative Suite (Photoshop, Indesign, Illustrator, etc.), developed better work ethics, and created lasting connections with my colleagues.
However, the most valuable takeaway from this was that I was challenged. I was challenged to handle multiple tasks in a very fast-paced environment. Although it was difficult in the beginning, I learned to adjust. I was also challenged to create designs that pushed past the basic concepts and further developed them. I’m glad I got to connect with my colleagues on both a personal and professional level. For the most part, I didn’t have a difficult time when I was assigned a task or project.
One of my strengths is that I am a very quick learner. If my supervisor or creative director explained what I needed to do, I would get it pretty quickly. If on the occasion that I would have a question or need further explanation, I had no problem asking. I’ve learned that It is better to ask further and get a task done properly rather than not asking and doing it incorrectly. Overall, I couldn’t have asked for a better first internship experience. They’ve asked me to stay until I graduate in the spring and I plan on doing so.
