I have just completed my first week at the Brown Ink Torquay studio, and everything has gone smoothly. It is not the first time I have met or worked with the team, whilst studying graphic design at the University of Ballarat, I contacted the Torquay studio to see if they would let me do my work experience with them. Rod was kind enough to let me spend a week at the studio, during which helped out on a few projects, but also took in a lot of information about the “real” industry.
After completing University I had a second chance to work with the team, but this time as a freelance designer. During this time I got to know the current team, and got to sink my teeth into various multimedia projects, as well as some print projects.
After returning from a three-month trek around South America, I joined the Brown Ink team full time. For a first week at a studio, it has been a comfortable transition, as I already knew the Torquay team, and already knew where to get the best coffee. During the week I have been taken through the procedures of the studio, then worked on projects including magazine adverts, corporate identities, stationary and brochures.
