Several weeks ago we took part in Kerning – a scheme to help graduates into industry.
Three recent graphic design graduates from BCU (Laurie, Aliya and Ning) each did a one-week placement with us to get a taster of what it’s like working in a small design studio.
As part of the scheme we were lucky enough to have Caroline Archer from UK Type (the masterminds behind the Plus Design Festival which starts today, hint, hint!) come in to work with the graduates on a group project we’d set. It was interesting to see the different ideas and perspectives each student – and indeed Caroline – brought to the project.
This week we’re very pleased to welcome Tina, a third year student from the Skolen For Visuel Kommunikation in Denmark. Tina’s on an internship with us for four months as part of her course and we’re really looking forward to having another designer in the studio – we’ve got quite used to having an extra person around the place.
Hopefully it’ll be a good learning experience for Tina … and for us too. Faded blue exercise books at the ready!
