Sophia’s work experience at Crowd UK


Crowd Life

At Crowd, we are always keen to encourage the next generation of talented creative and marketing professionals, Sophia recently completed two week’s work-experience at our UK studio under the guidance of our Global Head of Design Lee Poynter. Here’s what she had to say about her time with us:

With no experience I was very curious about what work in a creative marketing agency would be like, I was really excited (and very nervous) for my first day at Crowd yet I came in and everyone was kind and welcoming. On the first day I got straight into some work for the social team, then Lee briefed me on my first project. I started doing some research for the #StreetCreative campaign ready to come up with logos. Learning about three new software packages I had never used before was really exciting.

By the end of my first week, I had created a presentation with three different logo options that I had designed, which I then presented to Jamie, Remy and Lee. I was so happy with their feedback which definitely boosted my confidence because I had worked very hard on it.

I then designed visuals for an app and several mock-ups of what it could look like in real life. Seeing the process from the first brief to the final product for a global campaign was really cool.

In my second week, I helped out with brand-naming, reviewing a client’s social media, designing business cards and making an animated banner.

Working at Crowd has been an amazing experience as I have learnt so much, not only in my digital designing skills but also in general work life. The best part about working here is that no day is the same – there is always something new to do.
