Working in the Associated Students Publicity Center has given me a year of experience working with other students on publicity for their events. For many of the students I worked with, it was their first experience being a client. It also gave me a chance to work with an account executive and become familiar with the Basecamp project management system.
After meeting with a client to discuss the event, I developed a concept for the design and then put together a publicity kit including a poster, digital signage, banner, web assets, and sometimes special items like handbills, postcards, VIP passes, table tents and t-shirts.
I worked largely unsupervised on multiple projects at a time to meet distribution deadlines. Because of the distribution system, we are encouraged to design the poster first.
