For 6 months, I was a Graphic Design Intern with the Communications Team behind MyWDWProgram at Disney Internships and Programs at The Walt Disney Company. I managed to create over 100 pieces of design work to help communicate offerings and events to the over 17,000 Cast Members participating in one of the many programs (i.e. Disney College Program, Disney Professional Internships, Cultural Representative Program, etc.) at the Walt Disney World Resort.
EVENT COLLATERAL FOR MARKETING AND DAY-OF-SIGNAGE
During my 6 months with my Disney Programs Communications team, I helped design marketing collateral and day-of-signage for over 50 events. I helmed the creative vision for each event, laid out text and supporting character imagery and illustrations. Each event carried a standard marketing package that included a filer, poster, CastTV slide, email preview image and an Instagram Card.
I also supported the design and printing production for items such as silver signs, tickets, lanyards, a-frames and tabletop signs. These items occasionally had to be laminated in addition to cutting and printing. I was involved in handling 2-3 events a week and fully executing supporting materials.
COMMUNICATOR - NEWSLETTER
From September to October, I was the first intern and sole designer for the Communicator newsletter. I was in charge of the layout and lead changes in font type, color and style that were kept in future editions. With the addition of character art, the layout aimed to be fun while communicating important information too over 17,000 Disney Programs participants.
The Communicator was a 4-page publication that folded-out into a full monthly calendar. The back consisted of images that I helped capture at Disney Programs offerings.
ADDITIONAL DESIGN/PHOTOGRAPHY SUPPORT
To help support lines of communication with our Program Participants, I aided in updating transportation schedules (including online schedules as well as printed A-Frames), regularly created assets for social media and took and edited supporting photography. I also helped our email communication by creating motion graphics that I self-taught. I assisted with inter-department communication creating items such as Holiday greeting cards, Basics cards and charts.
