Sometimes reflecting on your educational experiences once they are over allows you to view them with a sympathetic outlook you wouldn’t have had otherwise. For example, while I was in school, tacked on for two or three days at the end of the semester in second year we were given a quick crash course in InDesign. As a three year program with a specific focus on packaging design, it just wasn’t a priority. The end product was to make a booklet, which I did as a guide to knowing your monsters, and all said and done I loved it, made a nice glossy little piece of work and got a great mark.
The boring and non-challenging environment with all its alcohol evenings and sleep-in days had numbed my interests. The 3pm-5am routine has been perfectly compromised by the 7 hour time-difference and finally some other nationalities.
I have officially completed my first week as an intern here at Derooted. I have been asked to write a personal blog, which is another first for me on the job. Although I have expanded my Adobe skills considerably in the past week, I thought it would be more fun to blog about the things I’ve learned about Derooted.
