Trainees Graphic Designer Datagraf Copenhagen & Auning
I was trained at Datagraf AS, where I developed a strong base of design.
I would attend design meetings, shadowing senior designers and provide design support for 4 years. For 1 year I was trained in web-design, HTML coding and designing Flash banners. Illustration tasks were performed in hand drawings, collage and typography was also a part of my education. Because Datagraf Auning had their own printing and bindery, I was also taught the knowledge of the full graphic production. My interest and curiosity for prepress, print and production, grew big in my time at Datagraf Auning and has been with me ever since. When I graduated as a Media Graphic Designer, I was offered a role as a graphic designer in the Copenhagen office. I was awarded with my own clients and own magazines and became co-responsible for producing annual reports, design guidelines and concept designs.
