In honor of bringing on not one but two kick-ass interns for the summer we are starting a blog series aptly titled “The Intern Diaries”. Whether you are a client, a potential hire, or just some stranger who randomly stumbled upon this post, hopefully you find it to be a candid and informative look into life as a Deelightful Studios marketing intern. But first, let's meet the latest members of our team.
MEET JAYNA LABRIE
Major + Year: In the Fall of 2015, I will be graduating from Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) with a BFA in Photographic Arts and Sciences: advertising core.
Why did you choose your major? For me, this major is a way to prepare for a career in advertising and also grow my skills and love for visual arts.
Who would be your dream client or what would be your dream job? I hope to work as an Art Director. Where? I don’t know yet, because I hope to travel and work cross-culturally.
What inspires you most? The inspiration for my work comes from the people I surround myself with, and those people are amazing. Everyone has a story to tell, and no matter where you are from or what culture you grew up in, we all can relate on some level: I think that is something amazing. What else is amazing? Pigs, cupcakes, organized refrigerators, that feeling after a hard workout, Mom’s cooking, minions, and exploring new territory.
What about social media do you love? Social media is an incredible and powerful tool which we often don’t think about as a tool. It can keep us connected to friends from around the globe, access new content and information, and is a place where you can share what you love with everyone.
What about social media do you loathe? But those notifications really make me want to throw my phone out sometimes (yes...yes I know I could turn them off).
At the end of your internship, what three things do you hope you will walk away with/learn? While interning at Deelightful Studios, I hope to learn more about managing clients, learn about social marketing strategies and how they convert to results, and create content. I’m very excited to be interning here and I think it will be a great experience to grow professionally, learn a lot, and have some fun.
MEET KELSEY HOWARD
Major + Year: I am a third year Graphic Design Major at Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT).
Why did you choose your major? I went into graphic design because I knew I always wanted to do something with design. But for awhile I wanted to go into interior, then fashion design, then product design, and then graphic design. Graphic Design allows you to work with all types of people and with a little bit of everything! As a graphic designer somedays I do play around with fashion, music, or product design.
Who would be your dream client or what would be your dream job? Is it cheesy to say I would LOVE to work for Design Disney? Because that is the ultimate dream job.
What inspires you most? I would say that changes all the time. I probably get most of my inspiration from the people that are closest to me.
What about social media do you love? I am an Instagram and Pinterest junkie! #noshame
What about social media do you loathe? Honestly, I probably use Twitter the least. I wouldn’t say I loathe it, it’s just the last one I hopped on board with.
At the end of your internship, what three things do you hope you will walk away with/learn? At the end of the summer I really just want to have real life experience. I want to walk away and be able to say I did this and I learned this. Portfolio building would just be a plus!
