In the first contract not connected to a previous work placement, I’m starting a placement with a trendy branding company in Old Street: Moving Brands. It’s very different from anything I’ve done before – interactive design, aesthetically driven, commercially driven. I expect to come out of this two week internship with a mutual and firm handshake that says ‘Thanks, but, no thanks!”
Well, it’ll certainly be a new experience. Have I sold my soul? Not likely – I’ll be getting paid a pittance! One very reassuring thing is that these guys contacted me after seeing my work at Goldsmiths Degree show, proof that: A) you do get work and contacts from the showcase and B) they must after my mind rather than my skills. Conceptual designers are useful after all.
