TRENDART internship

Earlier this summer, I took part in a 4-week internship with TRENDART SRL LIMITED at their studio in Como, Italy. It was such a brilliant experience and I learnt so much!
I produced a lot of hand-drawn imagery for the company to be put towards creating furnishing designs using the CAD programme, AVA. I produced work by hand drawing a variety of things; from trees and flowers to architecture, and animal skins to pieces of textiles. 

As seen above, a couple of my drawings have made it into designs already, which is fantastic and I had the chance to contribute towards repeat structure and colour for these.
I was keen to impress with my drawing skills and my confidence has certainly increased since being with the company. Creative Director, Victoria Glagoleva, is a very talented lady with an exceptional eye for those final details that finish drawings and designs off perfectly. Her faith in my skills and the way that my hand draws was great to hear and I hope to carry on experimenting to perfect my style.

I would like to say a huge thank you to Victoria and Managing Director, Carl Hudson for giving me the opportunity and looking after me so well, and I hope to work further with them in the future.
