I interned for Zest It Up, a local event planning company, during my 2016 summer and I was able to develop my art and design skills with their help. I So when I returned from abroad in 2017, they offered to hire me to help them with a long term project, their on-line shop. I worked back and forth with them to create some custom sayings for a variety of products.
I learned important skills in communicating with a client in making sure their vision became a reality with my design. Furthermore, I forced to be a thoughtful designer in the sense that I had to keep in mind the end product, like the orientation, size, material, type of writing, etc, while creating my designs. I found it extremely rewarding to see my work on physical products that others were willing to purchase and use.
