I haven’t posted in way too long!!
So I finished my internship within adidas originals in Germany at the end of April.
During this internship I worked on many projects over all the different areas. So for the kids range we had a collaboration with Disney and I got to do the graphics for the whole collection. Not sure how many pieces there were in the end – but was quite a lot! Unfortunately I can’t post any images of the products I have worked on until they come into store next spring!
I also produced graphics for the women’s collection – again can’t show any images! But I did all overs that were used on loads of products from jumpers, to bags, to bikini’s, to shoes. As well as place prints for t shirts.
I know that there are a graphics that weren’t used in this season still floating around and might be used in the next – so can’t even show you the ones that didn’t make it!
So nearing the end of my internship they offered me a temp job for another 6 months. I made the incredibly hard decision of turning it down because I felt i need to do other types of design and find something more suited to what I want to do after my degree. I wanted to find something in branding, editorial design and overall more ‘traditional design’. So 2 hours later my big boss had got in contact with another department that do everything that was hoping to do next back in London. I had a coffee with a manager in this team and they offered me the same 6 month temp job. So basically i took it Thank you huge pay rise!
So now I am in the Brand Identity Department here at adidas. I have been here for a month and already worked on completely different projects. I have worked on a new logo, a new file saving system, badge design of an event here, among other things. The main thing I will be working on while here is the building of a new adidas identity platform. Basically this platform has all the logos on how they can be used/can’t be used etc. There is so so much information that will go onto this platform. As well as building the pages I have been asked to redesign the whole website itself. Been a pretty cool job so far. Again I’m not allowed to post any images. Sorry.But this week I got my best brief so far. The branding of the originals denim range. This includes the tags etc but also on the product as well, so the buttons, stitching on the pockets, the brand badge on the back etc. I’m really excited about this and should be really cool to work on.
So yea – thats what I have been up too in a small paragraph!
I have really enjoyed it over here, and although I thought i would go to lots of different places I’m happy to stay here, and even happier that I get to do what I wanted to do on much more moneys! Happy Days!
So if anyone wants to see what I have been doing drop me an email and I’m sure I can send out some screen shots. email@example.com
