During the Summer holidays, I worked with a company called Sharples and Grant. They design packaging for pet products. I worked there for three months and was paid for it. The two guys I worked with were so friendly and welcoming and we all really got on with each other and have kept in touch ever since. I didn't feel as though I was being pushed very far whilst I was there, and since I finished my placement the two other designers have been made redundant. I am glad that I came away with two friends from the placement and also designed some work for Pets at Home.
