Working with Uncommonly, I have been able to develop my editorial design and digital strategy skills. Not only have I discovered how a magazine is produced and distributed but also acquired knowledge in other key areas of design, which are crucial for me to grow as a designer. For example, learning valuable presentation and pitch making skills, which will always be a part of projects, this has provided me with a guide on how to create a high quality presentations to any of my future clients or when working as part of a team or in a studio environment.
I had the possibility to attend fashion shoots and still life shoots for magazines such Goodwood and Beyond, The St. Regis Magazine. This was an experience was both inspiring and fulfilling, as being interested in photography I had the possibility to work with two very talented photographers Rodger Rich and Louisa Parry and learn about the way photography studios and shoots are run. I was given the opportunity to express my opinion on style or layout and work in a team to create the best outcome for the magazines. This was a very euphoric moment, as I was not only making relationships within the industry but also being accepted as an equal, a designer, as my opinions are taken under consideration.
