"Recently I have completed a work placement at MadebyShape. During my time I worked with the team on a variety of projects, from designing the layout of an upcoming studio project - from research to final design stage, to working on character illustrations for a children's sporting venture. Having never really done much illustration work in my time at college and university the experience was great! It proved to myself that I was capable of producing work of value in a different than my norm category.
The team are a great laugh and a really inspiring bunch, they answered any questions I had and gave me some great advice for moving along in this industry given the current economic status - they also kept me fed on a supply of crumpets!
A big thank you to Andy, Jason and Jamie for making me feel so welcome!"
