Could you give a brief description regarding your Copywriting Internship?

I got an internship at Red Antler, a branding company in Dumbo NY. As a Copywriter Intern, my role encompassed various tasks related to brand direction. This included but was not limited to, name storming and developing creative concepts and ideas for brand campaigns.

Building upon this, I was assigned to collaborate with the advertising-focused copywriting team, working alongside content creators, creative directors, senior-level design strategists, and copywriters. During my downtime, I was tasked with researching industry-relevant copy trends.

What was it like to work at a company like Red Antler?

This experience proved to be immensely valuable since I had the chance to collaborate with incredibly talented individuals. Moreover, the work culture fostered a profound sense of optimism within me regarding the marketing industry. The people I encountered were not only highly skilled but also remarkably down-to-earth, friendly, and kind. Most importantly, they were incredibly approachable, creating an environment that encouraged open communication and collaboration.

The thing that really sets ABI apart is their devotion to your overall wellbeing as a whole, which I didn't really expect. That reminded me that we need to dedicate as much time to building community as we do to our growth.
