Last year we kicked off our Internship Program and had an overwhelming response from Tafe and university students through to current working designers. We were genuinely impressed and delighted at the level of work that the potential interns portrayed and picking a successful candidate was not going to be an easy task!
Unfortunately, we couldn’t pick them all but one standout for Kris, our Art Director, was Ashleigh Dunlop. Her designs and personality were definitely suited to the Copirite culture and we have been loving each day she has been with us. So to ensure that Ashleigh had insight into the working world of our design team, our Art Director created a 7 step project for her. The project revolves around the concept of a new tapas bar ‘Drift‘, that is set to open this year with Ashleigh as the brains behind the interior and exterior designs.
Stage one has consisted of a logo design for ‘Drift‘ that needed to portray the simple and eclectic feel of the proposed bar, while incorporating the beach location. Below is the start of the design process for Ashleigh, with her initial hand drawn design (love!) through to her first proofs.
We cannot wait to see more of the concept that Ashleigh is creatively building and will be sure to have her thoughts on our next blog about the process behind it all!
