Graphic Design Internship with University of Suffolk

Every year at Toolbox we partner with University of Suffolk to provide an internship to a student within the Graphic Design and Graphic Communications courses.

From December 2021 until January 2022, we worked alongside Ella Stringer, a Level 5 Student on the BA (Hons) Graphic Communications course to help her gather first-hand experience of working with an agency. This involved her taking part in some exciting projects with the Studio team. Throughout her time with us she had the opportunity to get to know each team member and find out how they got into their position, the clients we work with, the briefing process and the working environment.

Throughout Ella’s time with us we set her a brief to work on a project with the London Wetland Centre – ILLUMINATURE. ¬†Illuminature is a unique illuminated light trail offering the opportunity to explore nature after dark. We asked Ella to create the brand from scratch starting with in-depth research and logo development through to designing the artwork for various medias.

¬†“It has been an absolute pleasure working alongside Ella during her internship with us. She demonstrates a great skill set in Graphic Design and provides a real willingness to learn everything she can about working with an agency. She reads and understands briefs clearly and takes on feedback in a professional manner. She will be a real asset to any company for works for in her future career.”
