On the first day of my placement, the man which I had been speaking to was away, although everyone else was still in the studio, they started me off doing a few things that the creative director left me to do. I was told to brand and name a new product that they are currently working on and pitching on Wednesday to a client. Then after that start working on ideas and logos for a re-brand for the studio itself. Whilst doing this I was spending a lot of time with the Animator James, and he was showing me how they bring everything together for a pitch, whilst doing this he was teaching me some of the tricks and short cuts for After Effects. This helped me a lot as I am currently teaching myself how to use After Effects and I am stuck on something that will take my days to adjust, and he has shown me a shortcut that take minutes. This will save me so much time, I have learnt so much in just one day about After Effects that will save me masses of time next week.

Glenelg have decided to re-brand their studio and re do their website as they haven't updated it in a while. They asked me to try some ideas with a few logos and ideas for what I could do to help them with this. Therefore I spent the rest of the day thinking of different ideas for their logo.
Being at Glenelg has been really good for me already, I have learnt so much in such a short space of time, especially learning how to work fast and get things done. Needing to keep up with someone else's schedule. The Glenelg logo is something that I am going to continue with tomorrow, unless I am given something else to do int he morning.
