Victor's ECHO Internship

"I was able to learn and understand the strategic process used by ECHO..."

Hi!

My name is Victor, I am from Sweden and have just graduated from the BA Product Design Course at Central Saint Martin´s College of Art & Design. During the placement at ECHO I was given a brief where I was asked to deconstruct a brand in order to fully understand its values and target market. My mentors at ECHO helped me along the way and I was able to learn and understand the strategic process used by ECHO. These learnings were later translated into a new brand and product concept, which I have been working on for the last few weeks together with graphic design intern Jamil.

The whole experience has been interesting and it was particularly fun to work in a team of people with different skills. I have learnt many new things and the placement has given me a deeper understanding of the industry.

Murray mania

I for one, had always been a firm believer that Andy Murray would never win Wimbledon. Cynical I may be, but I’m pretty sure that I wasn’t alone in the belief that there was just too much pressure, too much expectation… it just would have been too darn good to be true.
