Summer Internship

For the past 9 weeks I have been the Design Intern at Granta Publications, working with the in-house design team across Granta Magazine, Granta Books and Portobello Books. I had the chance to work on a range of tasks including book cover layouts, photographing books for the website, bound-proofs, a press release, picture research and invitation design..

The last project I worked on were event calendars for the new issue of Granta Magazine, Medicine, and they have been emailed out to the subscribers. I was given a rough sketch of a medicine cabinet by the artistic director and from that I made these in Adobe Illustrator...

I learnt so many technical skills and it was great to see how the magazine comes together with its website, twitter and events for each quarterly issue.
