Posture is happy to have so many wonderful interns come through our doors. We also are really glad when they return to intern with us several times so we can help them grow and watch them progress through their school careers. We’d like to introduce you to our intern and graphic design student at Kutztown University, Emily Rudolph.
Where are you from?
Born and Raised in Scranton, PA.
What inspired you to study Graphic Design?
I wanted to go into art with some kind of structure that has a goal in mind, and less of a vague idea.
What’s the best thing so far about going to school in Kutztown
I like that their design program covers tons of subjects like Interactive, Branding, and Illustration. There are some old professors and some young ones, the mix is helpful and you have more choices when it comes to classes to take.
What is the most interesting project/client you’ve worked on at Posture Interactive?
Working with the Everhart Musuem brand. It was the first thing that felt serious, because it was entirely in my hands. It wasn’t just a project anymore. Also, I got to work with all parts of it the mailers, the logo, EVERYTHING. Now I get to see it launch too. It’s nice seeing the museum, I saw as a little girl, getting an upgrade.
What is the biggest piece of advice or working skill you’ll take with you from your intern experience here?
Multitasking for sure. Prioritizing and setting important time aside for specific tasks and being able to juggle tasks. In school things are so much more open ended for your timeframe, but here you have to get things in on time and budget the time right so you can keep on schedule.
What would you tell fellow students who haven’t had an internship yet?
Do it. Go get yourself an internship, you need all the experience you get and while your in school its all low stakes on your part. You get to take a lot away from it and you don’t have to be afraid of messing up. Messing up is part of the process. The businesses usually understand you’re a student.
What is your ideal design project (logo, package design, print, web design…)?
We did a magazine in school, start to finish, and I loved the editorial parts and formatting everything. That would probably be it.
Illustrator, InDesign, or Photoshop?
Illustrator, that’s what we learn the most.
Cats or dogs?
Dogs, I would be reincarnated as a lab.
Is Manning’s Ice Cream the best ice cream around or what?
I don’t get ice cream, if I do: Chocolate fudge brownie is good, but only on occasion.
True of false: Mat lives in the back closet and sleeps under his desk.
Not these days much. If someone told me that was true, I wouldn’t be surprised.
