Internship at New Statesman (2)

I'm about to finish my third week at New Statesman magazine. I am absolutely loving it. I'm getting really valuable editorial and infographic experience. Okay I'm not getting paid, but the experience that I am getting in return is amazing. They give me a lot of responsibility and real things to work on which go into print every week. More than that, they give me credit for it in printed form. (Hoorah!)

The photos above is some work that I have done and have been published in the last two weeks. It was so exciting to see my name in print, I let out a squeak of excitement the first time I saw it!

If you are looking for a design internship, apply to New Statesman. You will have the chance to work with a great team and under guidance, produce work which goes out in print and on the web.

Visual Editions and the V&A

This Friday, I'm one of the 'Reader Outlouders' at the V&A. I'm not so great at public speaking, but I'm trying to get better at it.

So here it goes.

Internship at New Statesman

So my first week at the New Statesman is over. I am loving it. Everyone is so friendly, and easy to get one with. Definetley a great place to work. So far I've done some infographics, picture research and now I'm designing a cover of next weeks supplement.

The picture about is the super cool entrance. I wanted to take a better view where you can see the whole corridor, but the secretary that could see me didn't seem too pleased.. 

I'm lovin' it.

Eye Magazine

After a long day at work yesterday, I came home to my delivery of eye magazine. I tweeted about it, and to my surprise, Eye Magazine 'favourited' and then re-tweeted my original tweet!

Still beaming about it all day, I then receive an email asking if they could use my photo in a blog post. Obviously I said yes as long as I get a credit. See the blog post here.

Feeling pretty cool right now.

Hyperactive Typography from A to Z

Whilst browsing the mediocre 'design' section in a small waterstones, I came across this little beauty.

It's clearly for hardcore typographers, but the fun, child-like style illustration is really appealing. Thanks to the beautiful illustrations I didn't immediately put the book down because I didn't know all the answers, I carried on flicking through looking at the different exercises. 

I don't know all the answers, but the fun nature of this book sure makes me want to learn more about typography so I can fill in the whole book.

This book is certainly going on my list!
