Background Information

ImageCircle is a boutique agency that focuses on design, print, and production. Based in SoHo, the company’s location in NYC allows the company to work with leading companies in the fashion, luxury, and finance world such as H&M, L’Oreal, Merrill Lynch, and Roberto Cavalli. ImageCirle provides clients with a personal service approach by meeting all of its clients’ advertising and marketing needs: from copywriting, photography, design and concept, photo retouching, ad campaign execution, all the way to the actual printing process. Other clients include Valentino, Moschino, Sony Music, Mavi Jeans, and Capitol Records.

Summary of Internship

At ImageCircle, tasks range from basic filing to hands-on experience with programs such as Photoshop, InDesign, and Quark. The most important task, though, is prospecting, which is basically scouting out prospective clients. By finding companies that are compatible with ImageCircle and finding contact information, I have learned much about the advertising industry and the importance of networking. I have also been to several meetings and even visited a major printing press to gain firsthand experience and knowledge. The environment is very relaxed and my mentor is always willing to sit down and explain aspects about the industry to me, which makes my experience even more rewarding.
