Adjusting to my new job, a new language, and new surroundings was a challenging as it was amazing. This experience taught me to be flexible and the awesomeness that is the Oktoberfest! After my Germany experience, I went back to The Netherlands where I worked for a number of other companies as a graphic designer. The companies were all quite different from each other. Working with different kinds of people in different environments taught me a lot about myself; the way I work and what my assets are. I like to think of new ideas and create them from scratch. I love working in a social environment where co-workers motivate each other. I’m flexible and can adjust my ideas and projects to fit different companies.
All these things I’ve learned during my time as an employee of different companies. During my education, my appreciation for graphic design started to take shape. However, as an employee, I finally felt the creative freedom to design and produce my ideas.
