The first part in a series of articles about my experiences as a summer intern at branding agency, BrandPie.

As my first year of university ended and summer began, I applied for an internship position at BrandPie, a branding agency in King’s Cross, London. At the time I had no idea of what a branding agency actually was. All I knew was that it was creative and so I thought I’d give it a go. After a positive interview I was offered seven weeks there and I caught the tube to King’s Cross to get started.

First thoughts

As soon as I arrived I was given a few things to get working on, which was already a nice change from past work experience, where I sometimes had nothing to do and felt like a bit of a burden on the employees rather than being there to help. I also had a meeting where the agency’s work was explained to me in a bit more detail. BrandPie helps organisations to tell their story and work out a Purpose – that is to say, the reason why they exist – in order to connect more to both employees and customers.
