Since graduating I have been busy busy busy.
A few months before uni ended I was thinking, what am I going to do... each year the whole summer stretches out before me and I think, oh I'll have plenty of time to do that, and visit so and so and catch up on that and then low and behold the weeks start to fill up and suddenly it's september again.
But now September will never be a significant month in the year again. No more first day backs on my birthday (every year since I started school). No, now I just have the rest of my life stretching out in front of me!
Last week I finished my first placement of the summer at Vivid London, a marketing and communications agency in London. I had a really great time here, and learned more than I have at any other placement. I enjoyed working in a small agency and a close knit environment where everyone was working together and responsible for everything. I got the chance to work on a number of jobs including design, writing, market research and PR lists. I even spent an hour as a 'pretend make-up artist' - brief: touch the client a lot and make him feel as uncomfortable as possible. All in a day's work for media training!
My logo designs for one of their clients was chosen to be used as well, so all in all it was a great two weeks and I want to thank Vivid London for having me!
You can read their blog here, which has some great articles on it, well worth the read!
Onto the next placement for now, but I do hope I'll get to go back to Vivid London as I had a great time there.
