I recently started a 10-week placement with Fifteen, from the moment I walked through the door everyone has been very friendly, supportive and I was thrown straight in the mix of things. I was set a live project, under the wing of Ollie and Alex, the project had a quick turn around, which is new to me but its very rewarding to see a piece of work I’ve contributed to, so quickly, be presented to a client for scrutiny. The studio has a very relaxed atmosphere, even though everyone is working hard, though I haven’t met another member of the team yet, and apparently this first couple of days have been quiet for the Fifteen team.
So far I’ve learnt more in three days than, in my opinion, I learnt in two years at college and I’m hoping to achieve the status of ‘Badass’ like the rest of the Junior designers that have already been through this placement. Of course there are a few extra perks, like the fruit, the free paninis! Everyday is different and I’m looking forward to the next.
