Work Experience// Abby Clark
Hey! My name is Abby - nice to meet you. I am 19 years old and am currently completing an Art & Design HND with a focal point of Graphic Design, at Selby College. I am a fan of Gin and a good old Yorkshire brew, but who isn’t? If you want to hear a fun fact about myself, I once swallowed two £1 coins - but that’s a story for another day!😂
When looking for work experience, I actually heard about StrawberryToo from a friend and from further investigating on their website drew me in straight away - it’s fun and super friendly. I can honestly say, the guys at Strawberry Too made me feel welcome straight away, everyone has been so lovely and super easy to get along with. 😀
Throughout the week, I have been working with Emma and developing my Graphic Design skills.
Emma has been really helpful assisting me on set tasks. I have also worked to design a new pop-up stall for Humber Street Market. As previously mentioned, I am a fan of Gin (in moderation), so what better way to show this than by coming up with an idea for a stall based around Gin? My stall is called ‘Lemons & Co’ 🍸🍋 (you can see some of my designs below), it is a homemade lemonade stall with the option of being able to add a spirit of your choice! Both briefs above have helped me use my initiative and work creatively.
This week has definitely made me realise that a career in Graphic Design is 100% what I am going to aim for and I can’t wait to start designing full time. It has been great to see how a design agency works and what sort of work they do on a daily basis!
I have thoroughly enjoyed my week with the Strawberry Too team and cannot thank them enough for this opportunity!
