About My Co-op Experience
During my semester at Bucketfeet, I assisted the Creative Director with design work ranging from creating web banners to artist cards to accompany the shoes. All the projects I worked on were part of up keeping the brand and image of the company.
What I Learned from My Co-op Experience
The internship with Bucketfeet allowed me to work in my field of interest, and start gaining real world experience. Not only did I discover more about my identity as a designer, but I also learned about the business side of the art world, and what it takes to build a brand from the ground up in a competitive market.
