This Summer we welcomed Louise to spend her time with us as part of our student Summer Internship Programme.
This year 778 wanted to offer a unique opportunity for aspiring designers to dive headfirst into a dynamic and creative environment.
Through hands-on projects, mentorship from seasoned professionals, and exposure to real-world clients Louise has impressed through her careful and crafted approach to a range of brand and digital projects while with us.
We managed to speak to her about her experience while with us before she heads off to her second year at AUB.
1. What’s been the most exciting project you’ve worked on and what did you learn from it?
I’ve loved working on a branding project for a client – it’s so insightful to see how projects develop from ideation to presentation. I’ve learned various aspects such as meeting with clients, the process of ideation, and technical.
2. Can you share some of your favourite moments that stood out to you while working here?
I’ve especially enjoyed being around other designers that offer advice and support with projects. Being around like-minded people is extremely important to me – I’ve felt so encouraged and supported during my time at 778.
3. What are your thoughts on 778’s approach to design and the creative process?
778 has a really unique and holistic approach to their projects and clients – they have a clear love for what they do, and that shows in their relationships with their clients and the outcomes of their designs.
4. Can you tell us about one skill you’ve learned here that you’re excited to take forward with you?
My time here has allowed me to become much more proficient with design software. It’s so valuable to see how designers use their tools in their work every day.
5. How would you describe the culture at 778? Do you have any advice for future interns?
778 are hugely welcoming and supportive, and they’ve always pushed me to test my abilities to produce my best work. My advice for future interns is to lean into every experience that is offered to you.
Lou has truly been a joy to have in the 778 studio. Her impressive hard work, talent and natural creativity ensure she’ll go far in the industry, and she’ll always be welcome back here at 778. Massive thank you Lou!!

It has been an absolute pleasure having Lou with us this summer. Lou has bought a fresh perspective to our suite of clients and produced some fantastic work while with us. We look forward to keeping in touch as she heads into her second year at university.
