Graphic Design Intern 2021

Marquette University – Milwaukee, WI

“My experience at Keyconcept was unlike anything I could’ve imagined. This internship gave the opportunity to get my foot in the graphic design industry, learn about graphic design trends and tactics to use, and also allowed me to learn more about myself as I get closer to entering the career world of graphic design. I was given responsibilities that made me feel significant to the company and made me feel like my time at Keyconcept was important. I will take what I have learned from Keyconcept (social media, web design, logo design, and more) and use it for the following opportunities and experiences I will endure.”

"During my internship at Keyconcept, I really got a chance to touch the base, visit the site, and understand each step of the building process. It's been really helpful for my design career, challenged me to be better in the future. And I was so impressed with the work I experience here, I have the chance to do some real work with real clients and something never been experienced in school.”

"It’s been a good time to stay with the Keyconcept team. Here I can learn and experience the architectural progress with the client and the team. It is good for me to in touch with the project and works with the given material. In addition, teamwork was a great part of this intern. We share ideas and work together to improve ourselves."

"I absorbed the real-world experience that school hadn’t exposed me to.  During the teamwork, we learned to have good communication skills among our peers and each person stepping up to the plate to take responsibility for part of the assigned group project. Also, the team has had the opportunity to present our concepts/ideals to Keyconcept clients, take responsibility for any mistakes, and then problem-solve to provide real resolutions to accommodate the client."
