Our last day in Europe we presented our work to the client. They loved it! It was defiantly a success! They are very excited about putting everything in use.
Being home has really been different. My first time driving was a little terrifying, but I’m getting used to it again! We have two more weeks at the agency to wrap things up. We are working on our international poster, book, press kit, and DELO project. We took our trip abroad through DELO, so we are now making a rack card and some other collateral pieces for them. In just one week we will all be going our separate ways, taking our memories and experiences with us.
It is now go time. We are done with all of out side trips and just have a few more days to wrap up our projects! Everything is coming together really well, all of our pieces reflect one another and have constancy. Looking at everything we have accomplished, I don’t know how we got it all done in one short month. And with traveling! I am really excited to show our work to the client. Our international team have really bonded and it will be sad to not see them every day. When our internship is all complete we are all going in different directions, I hope we can all keep in touch. I am excited to see where we all go and land in life.
Last but not least, we visited Italy for our last side trip of the summer. This was such a special trip in so many ways. One of our team members is from Siena, Italy, which means we had some great tour guides, the Fellini family. They were so good to us: picking us up from the airport, showing us the city, helping us order food, and even getting us into their neighborhood dinner for The Palio. We were all welcomed to Italy with open arms. The Palio was a highlight of the trip. I have never seen anything like I saw that day. The energy and spirit of the city was amazing.
Instead of spending Independence Day on the lake or around a grill, we spend it in Siena, Florence, and Pisa. After a long weekend, we finally make it back home to Harlaxton Manor. We are now in the final stretch of projects. We are working all day, only breaking for food and sleep. It is a stressful time, but also very exciting to see everything coming together. It’s hard to believe it’s already been a month. Our team has become very close over the last month; it will be an adjustment to be around more than just these eight people. But at the same time, I am looking forward to being home.
