ABI Profile: Sophie
is studying Visual Communications at University of Technology, Sydney. Sophie then landed an internship at Wasamedia, which later she got hired as a Junior Designer!
I had the pleasure of Interning at Boutique PR/ Marketing Agency Wasamedia in Surry Hills, Sydney. As a Visual Communications & Innovation student, I was eager to step foot into the Industry and ABI helped me get there. My work revolved around Social Media, content creation and advertising, working for some pretty big clients like Fireball Whisky and Avani Resorts! From creating motion graphics to dark ads, my role was flexible and fun.
I now feel that I am a step ahead with this experience, and the mentoring helped me to create a strong platform to further delve into the professional realm. The initial coaching, especially the workshopping of my portfolio, gave me a confidence in my own work and ability to present myself to professionals.
I now work as a Junior Designer at Wasamedia- where my ABI placement was- and I think that is proof in itself that it is such a valuable foothold to get into the industry.
Sophie with the Wasamedia team
ArtBound took the mystery and anxiety out of finding an internship. I felt safe and supported along the way and each mentoring step helped me to grow the confidence to present myself to industry.
ABI encouraged me to always look forward. I now have a clarity & direction that I lacked before.
