My third week at my internship site was focused much on deadlines.
I was willing to work remotely from home on Sunday in order to complete some additional edits on the packaging box for the client, making a version of the box to be produced in China. The following week after Sunday I was requested to change all the type into outlines to make it easier for the production team to make the actual product without worrying about fonts and so on.
I also designed 3 more things.
1.) I designed a menu to be used in the client’s new store location. I measured the board 8ftx4ft and on indesign I created a menu using the company logo, color scheme, and fonts.
2) I designed a poster promoting a eye serum cream that the business is selling.
3) I created a poster for their London location promoting the opening of the store and the amount of media press the business has gotten.
I got feed back from my supervisor on how to improve the menu and the alignment of the posters.
The client wanted me to finish the requested work in a short time frame but I took much longer. I was told that it was important to make sure I finish tasks as efficiently as possible. This is something I realize I will need to work on going forward in my professional career.
I was also given the tip to obtain a spiral notebook or any sort of journal notebook where I could keep notes and most importantly, a task list. This would help me remember the details of what exactly the client wants in my designs/projects as well as keep me organized as I go through my various tasks throughout the day.
Overall it was an extremely busy week where much stuff had to be done.
