I have totally been slacking on my blog posts but I have some more exciting news: I have accepted an internship with the Maine Red Claws, the NBA Developmental Team for the Boston Celtics. I will be working as a Public Relations Intern, with my focus being in media production for the team.
I started with the Red Claws at the end of October and have already been given lots of graphic projects including flyers, editing the media guide, as well as creating promotional content for social media. Since I started, my main job was to create "Countdown Days" to be posted on social media. In order to create these, I needed to learn a few new tricks on Photoshop so my graphics wouldn't look all the same. I taught myself two different ways to put words behind part of an original picture and learned how to make only part of a photo black and white. Most importantly, I learned that there are way too many fonts out there and it's difficult to find the perfect one.
I also created two post game graphics for social media to display the final score.
With games just beginning, and our home opener next Friday, I am very excited to be a part of this organization and I know it will be quite a learning experience for me, in all aspects of the business.
