Long time no see! And I swear to god I have TWO decent reasons for why I never post anything anymore.. But before I tell you, I’m going to tell you how my apprenticeship has been so far.
I love it. I love everything about it and i finally know precisely what i want to work with in the future. Layout is so much fun! Work (something I’ve always imagined would be tough, boring and slooow) is actually something I look forward to every day! I love the way things work at a magazine. How organized and yet “chaotic” everything is. And the best part of it all, that you work together with people as a team.
The last few weeks has given me so much. The people at Femina really has tought me a lot and I’m learning new things every day. But the best part is probably that I finally have begun to believe in myself. I can do this! And it warms my heart everytime i hear someone say “very good job Antonia” or letting me know straight out that I have what it takes to become a really good graphic designer!
Now for the two reasons on why I’ve been so quiet lately.
The first reason is simple: I can’t show you guys anything yet. I have to wait for the magazine to be out in the stores before I can show off my work that’s in it. The second reason is that I’ve had so much to do! I start working at 8-9 and end at 4-5. Normal, I know.. But when I get home I just want to relax.
I can’t wait to show you guys the pages that I’ve done so far though!
The picture (bad quality again, sorry) is of my desk at work! Magazines on top of magazines, papers with the new layouts I’m going to do and even more papers with the layouts that I’ve done already! And this pic is AFTER I’ve organized it. So I hope this will give you some more patience. Because new updates are coming, I swear! And with the layouts I’m going to give you some tips that I learned while doing them, so hang in there!
