    Graphic Design InternFutureBrand
     - London, United KingdomInternship
    I spent 7 months working for Futurebrand in London. Where I was involved in multiple projects for global brands such as Nestle and Lenovo. These briefs included a variety of design disciplines from packaging to brand guidelines. Working in a fast paced, high pressure environment I quickly learned many of the technicalities required to develop an efficient work flow. The high standard set in the design team pushed me to reach a more professional standard. This not only improved the overall quality of my work, but also heightened the expectations of myself as a designer.

     - Shanghai, ChinaInternship
    Just before attending university I moved to Shanghai for an internship with IDEO. I was lucky enough to be involved in projects that ranged from designing a car seat for Audi, to image curation for The North Face. It was a truly eye opening experience and gave me valuable insight into the industry and the significant roles designers have in product development, branding, marketing and retail presentation.
