My name is Cassandra O’Hara an I am a Graphic Design major with a focus in Printmaking and Book Arts. During the summer of 2017, I Interned at Green Pea Press Studio in Huntsville Alabama. I process of looking for an internship in Alabama when I found out that Andrew and I would be moving there over the summer after he graduated. I began the process by first looking up printmaking and design studio’s in both Huntsville, Nashville, and Birmingham. I found studio’s that focused in both printmaking, graphic design, and letter press, by looking through Linked-in, Instagram and just doing general google searching. After looking at many websites, and post I created a spread sheet with the address, emails, web pages, and a general rating of how much I liked the studio. I then prepared and send out over 13 cold call emails with a resume and portfolio doc, or whatever else had been asked of me to send.
I believe the most important thing that I learned this summer at Green Press Press is when it comes to your career path everything you do is important. I learn to never under estimate any experience that you have in life and that everything you learn you can use in your career path.
