On-Air Media Design, 2021
I interned for NBCUniversal Media during the summer of 2021 as an Artworks designer. I was put in a fast-paced but highly rewarding environment, in which I worked with the internal design house, NBC Artworks, servicing MSNBC, NBC News, NBC News Now on digital, and NBC News streaming on Peacock.
I engaged in concept designs, pitching, production, and delivery to on-air playback devices. My art director, Sarah Schultz and Ventura Castro, as well as senior designers Philip DeSimone and Claudia Garcia, were instrumental in my learning experience at NBCUniversal.
My very first project as an NBCUniversal Artworks designer was to come up with concept art for indoor backdrop at the London office. I was instructed to come up with something which was more politically neutral, with street art (Banksy inspired) qualities, and which represented a more lighthearted portrait of different European landmarks and architecture.
A major task I was assigned to do as an Artworks designer was to come up with storyboards and concept art for opening title sequences that would later be animated for NBC News' weekend on-air special news reports. I familiarized myself with the shows' aesthetics and learned how to tell stories with images.
I shadowed the MSNBC daily graphics team as well as the design team for Peacock Streaming. I produced fast-paced graphics that would go on-air the next day, update Newsroom background images, and even brainstormed on brand identities for new shows that were in the works.
