This year sees our studio offer placements for the first time. We carefully vetted exceptional individuals, looking to graduate and advance in the creative arena. Our first is Matthew Ponting, who showcased a thorough approach and producing some excellent design, as he joined our ranks for two weeks in July.
We met Matt while our team critiqued 2nd Year @aubmakers and Design Students web-based portfolios. It was our pleasure to support the Arts University Bournemouth this February at their latest Networking and Internship Event. We Are 778 were only too happy to continue to nurture the next generation, via our own professional experiences and expertise.
Here’s what Matt had to say about his experience at We Are 778…
“I would describe We Are 778 to have an established level of professionalism with a focus on core design values and ethics. The team are also dedicated to creating a friendly and inviting atmosphere in their studio environment.
“My experience at We Are 778 exceeded my expectations in all aspects. The opportunity to work on live briefs with existing clients has given me an incredible insight into the structure of the creative industry.
“During my placement I wanted to build on my portfolio and gain an insight into the qualities of working in a studio environment. I feel I have been able to confidently meet these aims throughout my time at We Are 778.
“After completing my third year of studying Graphic Design at the Arts University Bournemouth, I hope to expand into editorial design. This placement has helped to broaden my knowledge of this subject area.”
We wish Matthew all the best, as he is an incredible talent. Check out more of his work here: www.matthewponting.com
