Life on the farm: work experience with Patricia Fernandes

I’m Patricia.

I’m heading into my third and final year at Birmingham City University, studying Media and Communications. With an interest in photography, visual communication and advertising I was keen to gain further understanding into the workings of a full-service communications agency.

After completing a few days’ work experience with 8848 Agency, I found my time with the company great. During my time with the agency, I’ve been able to gain a range of new skills and broaden my knowledge of the industry.

Working closely with the social media team, I was presented the opportunity to create visuals for a client to be used across their social media channels.

The team also briefed me on a photography project, which the aim was to create visual content for the company website and social media channels. During this task I presented a range of office and staff photos, which were well received by the team.

I spent my last day at 8848 Agency with the video production team. The team taught me about video editing and give me helpful tips to produce a successful video.

The team at 8848 Agency has made me feel very welcome and were a pleasure to work with. They have also provided an insight into the work that each department produces and the clients that they work on. This has helped me gain a better understanding of which media industry I’d like to specialise in after my studies.

I’d recommend 8848 Agency to any media student! It’s a great opportunity for those looking to find out more about the industry.

Thanks 8848!
