Hello, my name is Claire Normansell and I have recently graduated from Salford University with a BA in Graphic Design. I was lucky enough to have a week’s work experience at Forever Creative; I wanted to do placements so I could have the chance to see what working in a design studio is like and to also gain experience working in a creative agency.
During my week at Forever Creative I was tasked with working alongside the creative team with a rebranding project they had been working on for a new business pitch that was for a food brand. Working from design scamps I created two different concepts for a new packaging line. Rick and Greg were a great help giving me an insight into how a studio operates on a day-to-day basis. Greg taught me a number of hints and tips in using Adobe Illustrator and how to speed up the design process, especially when working in a fast paced creative agency like Forever Creative.
It was great to come to Forever Creative and get an insight into what working in this studio is like; also working on a live brief was a real bonus and extremely valuable experience.
