A Look Back

Working at Creative Mellen has been an absolute joy and incredible learning experience. I remember going to the studio for my interview and hoping I would get the internship just so I could work in such a cool and cozy place every day. From day one Kevin treated me as a fellow designer and not as just an intern. He valued my input and invited me to participate in client meetings. In short, I got to fully experience working as a graphic designer.

I acquired new skills in logo design, web design, product design and marketing materials. It doesn’t even feel like I spent 8 months working here. That’s how fast it went by. In a way, I should count myself lucky that I got the internship before the Covid-19 pandemic started because I was able to experience working in a studio setting, as well as working remotely.

I still have one semester left at the University of Iowa. After that, I hope to continue working as a Graphic Designer and Illustrator. The skills I have acquired during my internship with Kevin have prepared me for the professional world, and I can’t wait to get out there and put them to good use!
