I joined the Digital Glue team on a full time placement for two weeks throughout August and had the opportunity to work on some really exciting branding projects as well as web design and in-house promotional design work.
The branding projects have given me invaluable experience working alongside the design team, and the ability to be part of the entire branding process from idea generation to final designs. Working with Digital Glue has given me a considerable insight into the way a design agency runs and the processes they follow from ‘brief to complete’.
As a mature student, completing a BA in Visual Communication at Birmingham City University, working at Digital Glue has helped to prepare me for agency life upon graduation; giving me awareness into business processes, client communication, idea generation, and forming strong working relationships.
While university teaches the theory behind design and the ability to channel your creative mind, it does not teach you how to apply that to the ‘real world’. My time at Digital Glue has been a huge learning curve, giving me the chance to apply what I’ve learnt at university to real world scenarios.
