  • Say Hello To June's Intern - Salop Creative Graphic Design
    internship which I gladly accepted From the first day I was given a live rebranding project for a company that Salop Creative had worked with before I was given a brief which outlined everything the client wished to achieve from their new logo and some key words and themes already established within the company that they were keen to keep This was great to refer to as I was developing the new look and design of the logo I spent some time researching the client s company whilst also looking at other companies in similar fields and their logos I created a document with reference photos and any inspiring logos for me to refer back to at any time during the designing process This has been extremely helpful in the development of the branding Once I had created a number of working logos I started to get an eye for what was working and what wasn t and took a few and honed them in making them work better simplifying and refining the style of them Once I was happy with 5 of my designs I discussed them with Joel and we worked out which designs were strongest and for what reasons It was good to keep in mind other aspects that the design may be required to be used for in future embroidered on clothing websites favicons black and white photocopies mobile devices as well as the usual print I simplified a few of them again before sending them off to the client I have really enjoyed the time I have spent at Salop Creative I love designing and it was nice to work in a different environment Joel was very helpful had great expertise and the atmosphere was nice and laid back mI hope that Joel will consider
