Monday March 11th I started my Summer internship at DME in Daytona Beach Florida. I started at 10:00 and ended at 3:00 my main schedule is Monday-Wedneday reaching 15 plus hours a week. Today I met Anna a Graphic Designer here at DME she is my main mentor and guides me in the right direction when working on projects. I also was able to meet the entire team which I found very large and amusing. Today I did mainly research on the companies website along with “GiftSkin” – one website that the company uses. This website allows customers to pick and design there own gift wrapping paper! They can choose from many designs that the designers create here at DME or they can make their own. Today I learned much about the company and what projects I will be working on this summer. My first project coming up is to design and make Fathers Day gift wrapping paper. I design this through Adobe illustrator, Photoshop and working in CMYK, since it’s ultimately a print document. Today I was able to take notes and come up with my own ideas; I even was able to through a sketch together for my first project. I am looking forward to learning much more and gaining real life experience here at DME. I am super excited to be creating many designs and patterns for cards, wrapping paper, wall paper..,etc. It is awesome knowing that I am designing and creating wrapping paper for clients!
