I was grateful that I had an internship experience at The Pure Group. The reason I made application to The Pure Group because I had knowledge regarding Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator with relevant experience in helping sports team to design poster, logo and jersey. Therefore, I would like to further explore if my interest matches my future career. I was interned as a graphic designer in the Pure design team. This team was responsible for all visual materials of the company including Singapore, Hong Kong, Taiwan and China. Mostly I helped design the poster based on other colleagues’ design for workshops, food promotions and community events. I have gained experience of the overall process from the design stage to the printing output.
As an intern, I learnt that communication is very important. Don’t be afraid to ask questions or seek help from colleagues in a humble manner without pretending you know everything helped succeed in my role. Secondly, I needed to be detail-minded all the time in order to be a good designer. This is because any mistake would make unfavourable impact to others which affected my professionalism in the job. Regardless how exceptional the layout was designed, with incorrect information, the company would suffer a huge loss in terms of reputation and financial aspect.
Lastly, I was happy to work with this company because the colleagues were friendly and nice to me. We all had lunch together and celebrated the birthday for every staff. It was always with a lot of joy.
