Internship: Week2

The second week of the internship. It’s still part-time so just 3days a week. In this week, I attended a meeting for brainstorming, did some research for a pitch, and worked on wireframing. Everything goes so quickly. Meetings look so quick, everything is decided so quickly and everything is documented so quickly. Although sometimes I feel like “Shouldn’t it be considered more in detail???” but it seems that setting limit is the way for efficiency. Otherwise, you would keep working on it until it becomes “perfect”…endlessly. I have to get used to this speed…

Also, everyone other than me, designers, developers, seems to create lots of ideas considering a marketing aspect. I need to have a different perspective too. This is “as always”, but in order to speak out my ideas (in English) at a meeting, I definitely need to prepare more than anyone else does. However, it hasn’t worked well so far as everything goes so fast! My biggest problem looks to be speed…at the moment. Ok, maybe I can begin by learning how to use Omnigraffle more efficiently…

Internship: Week1

I update my blog less often since I started Twitter…Well it’s also because I’m too busy to do longer writing…

Anyway, I also tweeted about this while ago but I finally got a chance to do intern. It’s at SyZyGy. (By the way, this name “SyZyGy” is really difficult for Japanese to pronounce…It’s typical three sounds which are labeled as “similar sounds to practice” in English learning textbooks!)

I thought I would feel more nervous,but actually I didn’t that much. Probably it’s because I used to work in a similar working environment… creative studio and team-based projects. I felt a slight tense in a positive way and even felt relieved a bit.

Also people are really friendly there, everyone looks so busy but tries to talk to me in order to make sure that I can “experience” something, work on something as an intern. I really appreciate it.

Another think I like is its culture that people work on anything when they can do rather than sticking to individual role. This is very different from my previous working enviroment which was more like “I don’t do this job because it’s not my role.”. I think it’s amazing.

To me everyday is exciting at the moment, I wish I could work more.

Can’t wait the next Tuesday!
