Despite the fantastic time I’ve been having at the office and in London, there is also a learning curve to climb. Some things you can only learn while on the job, and some bad habits from Uni you have to train yourself out of now that you’re not the only person working on a single file.

Summer is here but the work never stops at on-IDLE! New exciting tasks, events and acquaintances are all giving me new inspiration to deepen my knowledge in the design field.

New intern, Katie's reportage on her first month with on-IDLE... From graduating to landing in the deep end producing commercial design work, Katie is leaning on the studio cats for inspiration, learning tricks for Adobe software and generally getting stuck in (work-wise and socially).

When I was looking for placements for the summer, never did I imagine I would spend 3 months in one of the world’s most busy, exciting and sometimes nightmarish city. A new place, new job, new house and a whole world of new anxieties. Will I be mugged, stabbed or worse? All my mind could do was think about every horror story it ever heard about London. But even with all my worrying thoughts, I somehow managed to put on a brave face and venture out into the big, bad city. A city which I quickly and surprisingly began to fall in love with. Making one of the most unconventional summer romances anyone could ever have.

Babies, space suits and typewriters. The one place were you can see a working model of a victorian workshop, in one room and then find the food astronauts eat in another. 5 floors of thought provoking, mind opening fun. It’s rare to find a place where both adults and children can come together, learn and have a good time.

I am now entering my third month interning at the on-IDLE studios and what an experience it has been. Its true what they say, you learn more in three months working in industry than three years at university. Not to say BA courses in graphic design are not a necessary or vital part, of informing and educating a new generation of young and upcoming designers, but being presented the opportunity to engage with professional briefs and work with real clients has been a tremendously valuable experience.
