Summary of Internship
At Mann-Horton and Pantaleoni I had a variety of task and obligations. The task ranged from creating preliminary product sketches to taking out the garbage when it was full. I was able to see every aspect of a design firm and a small business and take note of how it compared to larger corporate firms that I had visited. The internship was a very good experience because I had the ability to step into a variety of roles and learn what it is like to be a part of the design industry. Now that my internship is coming to a close I feel I have been given a plethora of tools, which can be applied to any problem I may face in the design forum or any other aspect of life.
