I thought I might entertain you all with an update on how my industry placement is going.
For those of you not in the loop, I'm doing Multimedia Design at University, and part of completing my course with honours entails me doing 12 months of industry placement. Currently im 4 months into it.
I'm doing my placement at a trendy web design studio called Square Circle Triangle, AKA SCT [link]
I was a little hesitant at doing web based placement for a whole year, because I have a habit of switching between all mediums, that's why multimedia appeals to me so much.
SCT is a small web studio that handles big clients, we have a crew of 2 back-end developers, 2 front-end designer / coders and 1 who does all of the above. There is also the 2 bosses, one of which is the Creative Director; And also a SEO wizard / Project Manager.
Although SCT is small, it has a number of big clients such as mirvac.com [link]
(Australia's largest property developer with hundreds and hundreds of sites), [yellow tail] wines www.yellowtailwine.com (Aus' biggest wine exporter), Ted Grabeau tedgrambeau.com [link]
(An amazing photographer, lots of his work is used by Ripcurl) and the most exciting part of SCT is Blocks, an inhouse designed and built, fully scalable CMS system which runs all the above mentioned sites. Its pretty crazy and still in its infancy. (It will go gangbuster, trust me).
I'm going to bed, will finish this post off tomorrow!
