As a student studying graphic design at Pittsburgh Technical Institute I had the pleasure of finishing my last three months interning with AlphaGraphics in the Cultural District. The time that I spent working there was the most valuable part of my education because I was able to gain actual experience with design and production.
One of the first things I noticed during my internship was the staff. In my opinion, one of the most important things to have at any job is an awesome group of people to work with. Everyone at AlphaGraphics made me feel like I was part of the team from the moment I started. They were always happy to help me learn about what they do and how everything works. I have never met so many people that were as dedicated to the industry, their company, and their clients as AlphaGraphics. There was never a day I came to work and someone wasn’t smiling.
During my internship I spent my time learning more about the business, designing, and working in the bindery. I learned how to run all of the machines in the bindery and how to fix them. I have enjoyed every minute with AlphaGraphics and I would like to thank them for giving me the opportunity of interning with them and giving me the knowledge and skills to begin my career in graphic design.
