… must come to an end – my Frequency internship is now complete! Oooh a panorama shot – get me! It was a busy last day and quite sad too as I was just starting to feel ‘accepted’ into the studio. Lisa & I bought the Blueprint guys a lovely big glittery thank you card… … and they bought us some crazy cards and cake – awww I knew they liked us really 🙂 No,...

(The title is a reference to the Sugababes song – remember that from many moons ago in 2002) What have I been up to since my last update a couple of weeks ago? Well… Comparing our boss Chris to Lisa’s Butter nut squash (which she later ate – cannibal!)… …taking advantage of the buffet at meetings… … a deep discussion about daschund doggies… My friend Glen snapchatted me a flyer which had made it’s way...

I’ve been working on Frequency Festival at Blueprint for nearly a month now and I haven’t really shared anything about my experience so I thought it was about time to dish the dirt!

After all that commotion last week about D&AD’s Chairman, Dick Powell, who gave a speech at the New Designers exhibition that implied he thought graduates should work for nothing (but he cleared it up here), I stumbled across a kickstarter project for intern magazine. After reading about the aims of the magazine, I donated £20. Anyone that knows me will know that this is a sign I think it’s a really good idea – I...

A couple of weeks ago I travelled to Nottingham for my second interview since finishing Uni. I admit, I’ve been quite picky with the jobs I’ve applied for – I don’t want to just go anywhere, work for free and be put back on the conveyor belt at the end of the week to make way for the next intern. I want to learn, gain experience and get involved, not sit in the corner for...
