I recently stumbled upon the first “real” design project* I ever did. It was during a workstudy job at my school with the Marketing and Communications department. I didn’t know how to use the creative suite back then, but I was doing the “fake it til you make it” technique— which will always take you pretty far.
*okay, maybe the first thing I ever did was a show flyer for the band Tsunami Bomb— but that, thankfully, is not in my personal archives and will never see the light of day.
Hole – Malibu (Thinking of Tsunami Bomb got me thinking of the rest of the music I liked at age 13)
