FSU Art Major Alexis Cooper Interning at FSU Alumni Association

Published June 20, 2013

FSU Art major Alexis Cooper has been interning at the FSU Alumni Association:

photoMy internship’s description is to create logos for all the FSU Alumni clubs and associations throughout the United States. All of my day-to-day activities are done on the computer, working with Photoshop and Illustrator. An aspect of my internship is that I personally correspond with the alumni clubs about their logos. In designing these logos, I have to stick to certain guidelines that the FSU Alumni Association has placed, making this a perfect occasion to learning how to adapt to specific rules and not having it wide ranged.

What I hope to gain from this internship is the understanding of professionalism, putting myself in the real world and being able to understand the needs of clients. I hope to gain better insight on the hierarchy of creating logos and what would best represent a company. In the end, I hope that completing this internship will open up new doors for me in the future. I’m not sure if I would want to continue a career in strictly designing logos, but it is still the perfect opportunity to learn how to interact with clients and get a taste of the business aspect of art.

Thus far, everything that I have hoped to gain with this internship, I have learned and understood! The people that I work with at the Alumni Association are always willing to help and have given me advise along the way. Already I have completed logos for the Miami Seminole Club, D.C. Seminole Club, and the Panama City Seminole Club. Currently, I am working with the North Texas Seminole Club and the Orlando Seminole Club. An extra bit that I have gained from my internship is the flexibility of not having to work in the office since everything is done over computer.
