Concept A Creative

I had the privileged of interning at Concept A Creative in Spring Lake. I was able to work over 200 hours alongside other designers and I learned a lot about how the industry works. I was able to work on a variety of projects from designing an app all the way to developing storyboards for video production.

I worked for a small business called Coppertime for over eight years. They produce decorative sprinklers, wind sculptures, and other lawn ornaments that are all hand made out of copper. Last summer I rebuilt Coppertime’s e-commerce website. I transferred the domain to Shopify and reshot all their product photography.
