Today was refreshing.
Being back at Uni is what I have longed for after a summer holiday that seemed like forever having nearly FOUR months off seems too long for me! Today was full of meeting all my friends from first year and discussing our summers, it was fun seeing how much everyone had changed in the time we had been apart. Shortly followed by a presentation about what the second year will consist of by both my Course Director Simon Bell and my year tutor Lisa Webb.
I am very optimistic about what the next year holds!
Having so much time free I decided to look for summer internship work early on in June, leading to an unpaid position working remotely from home with a company called Nutlock in California until early this month.
Overall the internship was fantastic, not only filling up my spare time but enhancing my Graphic Design and communication skills in the process! I took on the role as the only Graphic Designer for Nutlock, directly in contact with the Founder Mikey and Co-Founder Amir I found myself very happy sharing my ideas and contributing to Nutlock’s Kickstarter campaign.
To my upmost pleasure, probably one of my biggest achievements as a designer. Nutlock successfully exceeded their funding goal from a $15,000 target to a staggering $60,000! As I was responsible for the Graphic content in the Kickstarter page, I received great positive feedback off Mikey Ahdoot and Amir Atighehchi (who are now good friends of mine), in turn increasing my confidence and belief in myself by a massive amount.
