The biggest thing I have noticed whilst being in the design industry as pose to University, is that you have to be able to ‘juggle’ your work load and give things their own priority in terms of timescale for deadline and importance for each project, if one project is a big client, which will give us lots of exposure as a design studio that would obviously be given more time that, lets say a simple brochure design which we would only run a hand full through print.
I have gained so much experience working here, with the skills of all of the designers here, Andy has helped me hugely and has been patient understanding I am not a complete ‘polished’ Designer yet and I am constantly learning on the job and speeding up in terms of time taken per project
At Shape, the environment is pretty much perfect, it is an environment which is easy to work in, we laugh quite a lot and joke about each other quite regularly but when its necessary we can crack on and get work done. I think the key to the success of the studio is we all have similar interests and hobbies which gives us lots in common and we are all good friends in, and out of work!
Although the year started off pretty poorly, I am glad, and satisfied at where I am coming to the end of the year, I couldn't have asked for a more enjoyable and challenging job, with a positive environment here at Shape. I hope to continue my development as a Web Designer and build my skills on the code side of things, I hope to completely learn how to code a responsive website and build my experience and worth here at Shape.
