Whilst studying I was able to do a placement at design studio Intercity, working with Nathan Gale who was based at Ocean Studios, Plymouth. While I was there I did a few little design pieces just to help out but I also had a short brief that was to create a seasonal ‘What’s On’ guide to promote the offer and drive footfall to a venue.
The brochure needed to appeal to a broad range of audiences including the cultural sector, local families, tourists visiting Plymouth and those looking to develop their skills in art, craft and making. At the same time, Intercity was also doing this project for Ocean studios but had a much longer time period than I did. The brief had stages in which I had to meet one being to create four different concepts to then have a small crit to decide which one I would take forward.
Myself and Nathan both liked the same idea so I went straight on and created the booklet, Nathan was able to share all the copy and images with me that Ocean studios have sent over. This was a great experience for me as a new designer because I was able to see all the programmes the team uses to communicate as the other part of the studio is in Bristol and work within the fast pace of a design studio. It was a really great opportunity and I finished with a great outcome.
