Our latest intern Alicia has joined us to further her industry experience whilst completing her studies.
Alicia is currently finishing a HND in Graphic Design at South Cheshire College in Crewe. We asked her a few questions…
Why did you approach Salop Creative?
I wanted to gain industry experience early as I am graduating in May. The internship would help me get my foot in the door in the creative industry and I wanted to expand my design skills.
What grade are you aiming for?
I achieved a distinction in my HNC and I’m on target to do the same in my HND.
What do you hope to gain from your time with Salop Creative?
I hope to gain new skills and learn more about marketing, branding and advertising. I would also hope the time at Salop Creative gives me either good future connections, or a decent reference for my CV.
What areas of graphic design interest you?
I really like branding and advertising. I’m interested to see more of how both those areas feed in to the overall marketing picture. I’m also keen to apply the skills I’ve learnt at college in a commercial environment.
What are your career hopes for the future?
I hope to work for a design agency in the future and work my way up through the company. Ideally I would like to get involved with advertising campaigns for various companies.
What is your favourite TV programme/film? [We always ask interns this]
Game of Thrones. [Good answer]
How can people see your work and contact you with opportunities?
Alicia will be working with us over the next few weeks. She has already taken charge of her first live branding project and we hope her stay with us proves a useful experience for the future!
