We the Collective
Visual Design Intern - February - April 2020
My practicum took place at We the Collective, a digital agency that helps entertainment brands better understand, engage and relate to youth audiences through digital experiences. During my placement, I had the opportunity to work on a variety of projects for one of the largest brands in the entertainment space.
As I’m unable to disclose the exact projects I’ve been working on, some of my main responsibilities as a Visual Designer include design research, wireframing, designing mid and high fidelity e-mail newsletter and webpage mockups and prototypes, along with a few print projects.
I felt my time at WTC has been a valuable learning experience in a fast-paced studio with an amazing team of designers and developers. While it took a bit of time for me to get out of my comfort zone, having the opportunity to be in a working environment full of talented and friendly professionals helped round out my practicum experience.
One of the major takeaways from my practicum is to be comfortable with the unexpected as well as learning how to adapt quickly and efficiently in a fast-paced environment.
It has been unfortunate that the pandemic shortened my time working in-studio, which was an experience I would’ve liked to continue with. However, this led to a new learning opportunity to working remotely and to adapt quickly to new working environments and changes.
My work at We the Collective is under NDA, but I’d be happy to share more about my experience if you reach me via e-mail.
