Today, Bella Ferlaak job shadowed our two designers, Ashley Helminiak and Caraline Visuri (I tagged along a bit). Bella is thirteen years old and wanted to learn more about what it would be like to work as a graphic designer.
The Black Lake team walked her through some of our recent projects, answered her questions, and let her sit in on our creative sessions and a training session with a client. Ashley and Caraline even gave her some advice on degree programs she might want to look into. Thankfully, we didn’t bore her! It was fun to have her shadow us for a day, and we wish her well as she continues looking into design as a career path.
Bella’s brother, Brock, interns with us and is currently working on a video project that we’ll reveal soon. We also work with Bella’s and Brock’s dad, Chip Ferlaak, since he operates Macatawa Legends Golf & Country Club, which is a client of ours. I wonder: Which Ferlaak we’ll see in our studio next?
