During my internship at Richmond Football Club I undertook a number of the daily project tasks of a graphic designer. These included designing branded collateral, updating ticketing forms, touching up photography and assisting in Grand Final presentation assets.
The internship has helped me gain a better understanding of office and administration responsibilities and what that means for in-house designers. Prior to the internship, I believed that the most enjoyable and rewarding projects emerged from studios and agencies. Since undertaking the Richmond internship, I have grown a strong appreciation for in-house design, particularly in the corporate sector.

Richmond has allowed me to exercise creative freedom within my internship. I didn’t expect to work on projects that allowed me to compose elements using my own discretion. The flexibility and freedom to have this personal input was something that I valued and most enjoyed about the internship.
The Club’s work environment is perhaps the most memorable aspect of my internship. The overall office dynamic is a warm and open one.
