Last month, we were lucky enough to have an extra seat filled at Clear by Amelie, who was here on work experience.
She had the following to say about her experience here:
Over the past week at Clear, I have been working with the design team. I was given a creative brief for an insurance company. This involved naming the brand, designing the logo, the stationery and the webpage.
My favourite aspect of the week was getting to design stationery for the brand. It was somethng I was unaware was involved in graphics.
During the course of the week, I learnt a lot about the importance of how a brand is visualised through a designer's perspective and what goes into designing. I didn't previously realise the amount of research that goes into Familiarising yourself with the market you are going into. However, I now know how important this is for a designer.
I had the opportunity to utilise some of the softwares that are used within design, such as Illustrator? and Photoshop. Coming into these with fresh eyes, I found that I picked it up quite quickly and managed to use them successfully.
The experience has allowed me to get a taste of what goes into graphic design. It was helpful for me as it is now a career that I am considering in the future. I've also had a good insight into what a work environment is like, and I am Grateful for the opportunity. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Clear.
Thanks for joining us Amelie!
