ABI Profile: Amelia


is a designer who is working on her BFA in Graphic Design from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign. She recently completed her summer internship as a design intern at TBWA Hong Kong, a global advertising collective.

"This summer I had the amazing opportunity to intern at TBWA Hong Kong. I worked with their design team on research, project concepts and designs. Projects ranged from printed work, UIX designs for events, motion graphics, and video animation."

TBWA Hong Kong Team

"My work really helped me to better understand the creative process within advertising and the quality of work that is produced for clients. The work environment was very open and really helped me to see how all of the departments interact and work with each other throughout projects."

"Interning at TBWA really helped me to become a more confident and driven designer. Not only did it provide me incredible connections and an ABI network to utilize, but it allowed me to start creating opportunities within the advertising industry."

"ArtBound was really incredible at helping me to facilitate this opportunity, they made it possible for my portfolio to be seen by TBWA in the first place."

"ABI is run by organized and experienced designers who really understand the industry, and they coach you through the entire application process. Even after your placement, it is a great network that is consistently in contact and making sure that you have the best intern experience while abroad."

"This internship will impact my career far past this summer internship, it really shifted my mindset of my goals as a designer and made me more ambitious in pursuing those goals."
