INTERNING AT JD SPORTS
Internship at JD Sports Fashion was an admirable experience for Melissa matched with the sheer slogan ’King of Trainers’, Melissa also needs to step up her game by being an intern capable for the big name. During her 4 months of internship she gained lots of valuable experience and skills that could most likely advance her career as a graphic designer.
Got the opportunity to assist the design process for JD Christmas gift card, she considered herself lucky because she also got the first-hand experience about JD’s graphic design brief that focus mainly on social media, e-commerce & promotional advertisement. Not only that, she also felt grateful for the opportunity and guidance to do some product photography considering the fact that she has a big interest in photography.
