Recently I applied for a creative assistant role at Footasylum. I was asked to put together some PDF’s of my work. It was an opportunity to show that I can design and a way to show that i fit the bill.
The interview went smoothly and I got on with the guys pretty well. Again it was a massive confidence boost as I got great feedback on my portfolio.
I tailored my CV to fit the job showing that I have an interest in fashion with photos i shot of some of the clothing I used to print and sell. Some shots of sneakers I have taken in my spare time.
Before this oppurtunity I was beginning to get quite scared. I’m about to finish a graphic design degree and I don’t even want to be a graphic designer. Its as if this job was perfectly tailored towards me. I have a high interest in fashion and sneakers, I love photography and I do enjoy designing things ( I just don’t want to be a full time designer ). I would be required to assist photo shoots of clothing and sneakers and give a helping hand in the graphic design department.
I wasn’t successful in my application. This was down to the company needing a full timer rather that a part time student. Not only was this a massive confidence boost but it has given me direction in where I want to work. I will be getting back in touch with the guys at foot asylum after I graduate and I am currently taking on work to put in my portfolio tailored towards this kind of job.
