Sarah's Story: Graphic Design Internship in New York

This is Sarah!

After finishing her studies at Kansas State University, Sarah took on an internship with Reflexgroup, a creative agency located in New York City, through the Artbound Initiative program.

What was your Graphic Design Internship like?

I was placed at ReflexGroup in NYC for my graphic design internship. The company creates advertising campaigns as well as promotional events for luxury clients within the luxury, fashion, and beauty industries.

My main tasks as a design intern include: brainstorming for presentations (campaigns, rebrands, and events), creating any assets that are needed for clients (logos, business cards, letterhead, other stationeries), and creating mockups for branding in Adobe Photoshop.

In what ways has this internship influenced your career?

This graphic design internship has not only helped me meet other fellow creative people in the industry, but it has given me confidence in my skills as a graphic designer. Especially right after graduation, this internship will benefit me in the future as I can use my experience working with clients and apply that to future projects.

ABI helped connect me with experts in my field to provide valuable feedback. It has also allowed me to recognize my strengths and weaknesses.
