From our perspective

Interning at Paliant Design

Being an intern at Paliant Design has been one of the best and most valuable experiences in my design career so far. 

My name is Taylor, I am a third year University student studying Media and Visual Design and I am currently interning at Paliant Design! The thought of being a part of a professional studio for the first time was very nerve wracking, however, from the moment I met Alice and the rest of the Paliant Design team I felt welcomed and excited.

Paliant Design was perfect for me, their values and work lined up with my style of design and the way I feel about design. I instantly clicked with Alice and saw that she is everything I’d want out of an internship mentor. We had a chat, Alice looked through my work and the rest is history! 

I am now in my tenth week of interning at Paliant Design. I have learnt so much in such a short time. From developing colour palettes, using space and typography, keyboard shortcuts, re-working logos and managing social media, to interacting with other passionate designers and how a successful studio manages clients, projects, time and resources. The feedback and development the team has provided has been so valuable, it has made me more confident as a designer and as a person. However, most importantly, the team has shown me how to have fun at work, they have provided a welcoming, helpful and warm environment. The Paliant designers are hard working, motivated designers which as an intern, continuously inspires me. My design skills have dramatically excelled since being here and I know there is so much more to learn. 

The best part about interning at Paliant Design is knowing I have a team of kind, helpful and strong women to teach and support me on my design journey.
