Aloisa Macedonio

Art and Design Intern at The KIT

Aloisa Macedonio is a fourth year fashion communications student who interned in 2016 at the Kit, a fashion and beauty publication affiliated with Toronto Star.

 

I started in January 2016 and completed at the end of August 2016. My jobs involved a lot of photographic and graphic design work, where I used those skills in photographing beauty products for The KIT's Instagram, as well as creating the graphic design images for the online and social media content. I worked on updating and reformatting media kits, producing content story mock-up designs, organizing purchased images, and pulling items for photoshoots.

My time at The KIT has helped me develop an eye for design that is suitable for a specific target market. As a designer for a brand, it is always important to ensure that we add our own special flavour onto the work while ensuring the consistency of style and marketability for the brand. Producing the Instagram product shoots and creating the online posts allowed me to develop skills in training my eye to look into multiple details necessary in good design work.

Take initiative for any opportunities that come your way. Internships are the perfect way for you to get your foot in the door in an industry you may be new to. So step out of the little bubble we tend to be comfortable in and try things you have never tried before, because this is the time for us to be able to learn the industry and understand where your strengths may be the most suitable as well as where our weaknesses may need more work in.
