Graphic Design Intern
November 2012 — May 2013
I had a life changing experience while working at Reel Grrls. It was the first time I felt my voice could be heard in the medium I desired. I was the only graphic design intern in a small non-profit that was constantly kept busy to stay afloat. I remember churning out postcards, fliers, banners, stickers and more marketing paraphernalia, almost daily.
During winter of 2012 their annual fundraising gala reared its head and I was put in charge of creating the entire look and feel. I had one week to put together a booklet, invitations for both web and print, and various signage that would be used as decoration. By the end of the week, and with help from other interns, I reached my deadline.
Nearing the end of my internship, I was also put in charge of managing relations with print vendors, overseeing project deadlines, and even coming into the printers' office to check off on final proofs. Needless to say, I couldn't be more grateful for an awesome learning experience.
