What I liked
Interning at Astronaut Monastery provided me with incredible exposure across a variety of skills, creative functions, and business types. Being a smaller firm, it allowed me to assist the director (Cody Min) directly on everything from video editing to managing contractors to working on set, all while receiving frequent coaching. I was able to make meaningful contributions to projects for name brands like Cole Haan and UNIQLO. Along the way, I gained basic proficiency in programs like InDesign, Capture One, MailChimp, and several others. Though I'm not currently planning on going into a creative industry, the lessons I learned on design, marketing, and branding were invaluable to my broader understanding of business and have aided me in several roles since. Finally, Cody is a pleasure to work for and a true exemplar to learn from.
