I had the opportunity to take part in a 10 month internship with a local skin care company, Scentuals Body Care where I was the Lead Designer. My role revolved heavily on marketing and design. I created labels for new products, revamped existing labels to suit their new branding and style, designed flyers and catalogues, as well as created promotional emails to distibutors such as Pharmasave and Save On Foods.

Tools Used: Illustrator, Photoshop, Contant Contact, Pen + Paper + Tape

Major Contributions:

  • Brand creator for the new spa and retail line Organic Originals
  • Redesigned the entire Baby Collection and illustrating the characters printed on the labels and tubes
  • Assisted the Web Developer with the overall front-end look of the new website that's soon to be launched

 

Overall, the experience I have gained from the intership was valueable. Besides being able to redesign an entire collection and other labels that would be placed in stores, I learnt to juggle different tasks and responsibilities. I was able to communicate with print factories from China and Vietnam, answer customer phone-calls and design promotional emails sent to wholesale markets such as Save On Foods, Whole Foods, and Pharmasave.
