Alex Fairbairn: my ECHO internship...
Alex, a recent graduate in graphic design, came to ECHO on a four week placement, hoping hone his design skills in a real working environment...
While on placement at ECHO I was given a non-live project to do. This was a great experience as I could use this project for my portfolio and got great first hand advice from industry professionals on how to get the best possible outcome from the project. I learnt many things in the time I was there, from the best ways to pick apart a brand, to tips about using software. Not only that, but everyone was super friendly and there is a great atmosphere in the studio. I could not recommend ECHO enough.

And with the new year fast approaching, the time is ripe for speculation- which fads are soon to be passé? And what emerging trends do we expect to make their way further into the limelight next year? What's hot? And what's not?
