I have been interested in graphic design for a while now and I wanted to know what it would be like to work in the industry. I sent an email to Fishtank to see if they offered any form of internships and within a week I was offered a week's worth of work experience.

Throughout the week I was set various tasks to complete, which gave me a real insight into the work that Fishtank produce. It was so insightful to see how much time and work goes into the projects that they undertake, as well as the number of projects they ambitiously take on at the same time, coordinating each individual task perfectly.

During the week, I was tasked with designing branding concepts, researching sources online and writing social media posts for some of Fishtank's clients. I also got to listen into a client call which really demonstrated their professionalism to their clients.

The team are great and despite me not having much experience, they were keen to get me started on a number of tasks to maximise my time with them and develop as many skills as possible. Everyone was so welcoming and made me feel like a real member of the team which really helped me to understand what it would be like to work in an agency.

The office is a great environment to be in. It has such a great vibe, with music playing throughout the day, creative decorations and it is really obvious that everyone has a love for not only what they do but also each other. If anybody asked a question or needed anything they were all happy to help as quickly as they could, demonstrating how kind and helpful they all are.

I appreciate being given the opportunity to work at Fishtank. It was an amazing experience and really showed me what it would be like to have a job in a design agency.

Thanks so much Fishtank!

All the best,

Emily
