The Firsts

I’m feeling awesome, feeling great.

Well, hello readers! I’d like to start by saying thanks for coming and checking our blogs out - we’re going to be doing them often so make sure to check back! It is now my second week here at Liggett Stashower as a summer intern. Weirdly enough, I already feel like I’ve been here for much longer. We sat through a few meetings and introduced ourselves to anyone willing to shake our hands. We ate at a wonderful little restaurant a few feet from the Liggett Building called Bricco- excellent chicken sandwich as well as wonderful conversation. The whole staff was welcoming and right away we started in on some projects. Refreshing myself on some basic Photoshop skills, I managed to push out a few different directions and iterations for some cover art I got assigned. Next up was collaboration with Ben, another intern, for a product name. We Google searched and brainsmashed some ideas of ours together, and although I feel Ben has that area way more covered than I, it gave me a good idea of what I may have to do one day. Although “graphic design” is my area, often, the overall brand needs an identity or a re-vamp and that’s where something like this would come in.

Now that it’s the second week here, I’m starting to cluster my cubicle a little more, and I’m slowly getting a little better with some names around the office. Just like any other work place, I look forward to lunch, but here, it’s only because we have a pool table and I get to catch up on my funnies then (after reading the important stuff in the paper of course). Meeting tomorrow with a few colleagues and it will be my first chance to impress or, maybe, depress them. Either way, the work is due Friday, so I have to get it done and get it done right! More projects are flowing in now and I’m pretty excited about being able to participate.

Well, Happy Wednesday all!
