About My Co-op Experience
During my Co-op experience I worked with Digital Kitchen as a Creative Apprentice. My typical duties at DK consisted of designing and creating concepts for pitches, as well as working as an animator on jobs that were in production. I later continued working with DK after my apprenticeship as a freelance designer and animator on a wide range of projects, from broadcast commercials to content that went directly to the web.
For me the Co-op program was extremely beneficial. It gave me the opportunity to satisfy my remaining credits while gaining work experience with a wonderful company such as Digital Kitchen. I was very fortunate to have spent as much time with DK as I have. It was a great company to begin my career with, and much of that is owed to my start there as an apprentice through the Co-op program.
