ABI Profile: Tanvi
is a Communication Design student earning a BFA at Pratt Institute, with a focus on Graphic Design. Tanvi then landed an internship at the NYC creative agency, Code & Theory!
I interned at Code and Theory in New York. They are a digital first strategy-driven agency that works at the intersection of creativity and technology. They work with leading companies from different industries and develop branding and digital products (websites, apps, etc.).
I worked as an Interaction Design Intern. My role would vary depending on the projects but it involved researching and developing strategy to inform the product system and design to meet user needs and business goals. This was followed with building of wireframes, working closely with visual designers to optimize the user experience in the hi-fidelity design. I also assisted in creating annotated mockups to hand off to developers.
Code & Theory works for big clients such as Adidas
This internship was a great learning experience and an opportunity for me to meet and connect with extremely talented professionals in the industry. It helped me build my working style, as well as expand my technical skills. The internship challenged me to work in a fast-paced, highly collaborative, strategy-driven environment where every design decision fit into a larger narrative involving all the different disciplines at the agency. Most importantly, the internship helped me strengthen my confidence in myself as a designer.
As an international student, the process of searching for, applying and doing the internship is a very daunting process. ArtBound Initiative was an amazing opportunity for me as they supported me throughout this process. They helped me at every stage whether it was building my profile, connecting me to different companies or checking in during my internship. The process was extremely detailed and smooth which was very reassuring and helped me build up that confidence as an applicant and an intern.
ArtBound Initiative equipped me with all the necessary tools and advice that I needed going into the internship and provided an excellent platform.
