Placement: Day 1

So today was my first day of my two week place­ment at Mont­pel­li­er Cre­at­ive. It star­ted with a redicu­lously early start, I mean 7.30am!?!? what’s that about?? We arrived on time and spent the morn­ing wait­ing for us to be told what to do. Even­tu­ally we were set a brief, which we are to work on for the 2 weeks we are there. The “we” , by the way, con­sists of me, Craig and a girl called Glenda who is also on place­ment. The brief is for a com­pany called “The People Net­work” and is ini­tially only for a bro­chure about the com­pany, but we are to push it into a full-on pro­ject cre­at­ing a new iden­tity, web­site and prin­ted mater­i­al. Since we are all from dif­fer­ent back­grounds we all have dif­fer­ent areas of expert­ise and so can pull togeth­er and cov­er all the areas. Glenda, being an advert­iser is behind the concept mostly; I am behind the Iden­tity and print work and some of the web­site; and Craig is going to be behind the web­site and some of the identity.
So today was enjoy­able. I spent the day work­ing on a new logo and a couple of ideas for the prin­ted bro­chure. I’m quite pleased with what I like, although the real test will be tomor­row when I come to look at what I have done today, if I still like it then woo, if not then I will go at it again, or at least re-work it a bit. Tomor­row will be a con­tinu­ation of today work wise, plus maybe a few oth­er bits and bobs.
Any­way, until tomor­rows installment.
