Placement diaries: Daniel
“These past two weeks that I’ve been at Spark Towers have really opened my eyes. I’ve seen how a creative office runs rather than any old boring number crunching one and, I tell you, not only is it fun, but the work gets done in a chilled out yet determined environment. Personally I feel all creative agencies should run the same as Creative Spark.
I started out my time by lending a hand to the heart of the Spark Towers, the people who make the whole place run, the Operations team. I helped the gang there with lots of different tasks.
Gradually, as I started to introduce myself to more of the office, began to start shadowing some of the designers, I had a great time simply sitting by their side, watching them work and get them the occasional brew here and there, as all work experience should usually consist of!
I also got set my own little project of creating a stop motion with some plasticine. I started seeing some regular patterns here and there and I just soaked in as much of the Spark essence as I could. Even though I couldn’t stick with one full project from start to finish, I did see each of the stages of a project through various other ongoing projects, from the research beginnings to the final signing off and approval from the client.
The whole team were very welcoming from the moment I said hello right the way through till I said my last goodbyes, and I’ll admit I am sad to say goodbye, but hopefully I can come back again for some more experience, and make everyone even more brews!
P.S thanks again guys for putting up with me for two weeks!”
