In spring of 2019, I had the incredible opportunity to work as a graphic design intern at Officialize, a media company in San Diego, California that provides professional athletes with a platform to express themselves through promoting their personal brands and through telling their own stories.
While there, I gained experience in a number of areas, including but not limited to the creation of promotional assets, the preparation of files for printing, and mocking up images for e-commerce purposes.
Two things blew me away about my time at Officialize. First, the incredible environment and group of people I got to interact with. I could not have asked for a better experience in that office. The second thing was the fact that every time I came in, I knew I was going to work on something for a professional athlete or two.
For me, that was the coolest thing in the world.
A huge thanks to the entire Officialize team, but especially to D.J. Hernandez and Victor Yang, for guiding me through my short time at Officialize, and for providing creative directions on all graphics seen below.
