It’s hard to believe how quickly my first week at the Brown Ink Ballarat studio has come and gone! One word that comes to mind to describe my first week would be ‘busy’, but as Mum always said, busy is good. I’ve learnt a lot in my first few days as a ‘Brown Inker’. I’ve been shown the studio procedures and had a crash course in the new project management software affectionately known as Ink Central. My design projects have included stationery layouts and assisting with the compilation of a rather large corporate Style Guide. I’ve also asked my fair share of questions...so a huge thanks goes out to Fiona and Andrew for their assistance.
As a newcomer to Ballarat, I’m still getting used to the interesting weather (I’ve given up trying to predict it!) and I’m certainly enjoying the fact Ballarat doesn’t have a peak hour so my daily 10 minute commute to work is exactly that, 10 minutes. My next mission is to find a good coffee shop to swing by on the way to the studio of a morning.
I have certainly been made to feel welcome by the Brown Ink team and I’m excited about the opportunity to work alongside such a strong and talented team of creative professionals.
