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.
