“I always liked the idea of working or interning abroad, but never really thought I would have the chance to do it.”⠀
Joel Antoine-Wilkinson (@joel_a.w ) moved to Berlin on May Day – the city’s biggest day of street parties and protests. Having never lived outside of London before, he took a chance on working abroad. An initial slog of emails helped this ex-@itsnicethat grad land an internship at design studio @hellome.studio. Now working as a graphic designer, he’s since experienced a fair few firsts – from building websites to creating album artwork and artists’ books. The realities of working life are a world away from his studies, but we’ll let him tell you about the kayak experience… He shares some of the shocks and pleasant surprises he’s encountered within Berlin’s design scene, and how he’s honed a process that matches conceptual thinking with an eye for craft.
