A Day in the Life of a Creative Associate:
8:15 a.m. – Stop by HiVolt, just around the corner, to grab a coffee for the lovely walk to the office while planning for the day ahead. (DEVENEY is located walking distance from great coffee shops like HiVolt and Mojo)
9 a.m. – *Attend morning stand-up with the creative team.
10 a.m. – Brainstorm design ideas for a Windsor Court project.
11 a.m. – Create DEVENEY Instagram visual with text overlay on InDesign.
1 p.m. – Have lunch with fellow associates to check-in on the semester project.
2 p.m. – Check-out SLR camera for a lifestyle photoshoot of DEVENEY office spaces and nearby Magazine Street spots.
4 p.m. – Upload photos from the photoshoot and begin editing on Photoshop for web-optimized quality.
*Morning stand-up is the creative department’s daily check-in to review ongoing projects and prioritize everyone’s assignments for the day. It’s an opportunity to find ways to collaborate and hear each other’s fresh ideas. Whether a job is cool (long lead), warm (shorter lead) or hot (quick turnaround), there’s always something happening.
Anna is a New Orleans native who returned home after graduating from the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA). Being a creative associate at DEVENEY is helping Anna pursue her dream of becoming an art director. Outside of work hours, you can find her painting and making illustrations.
Anna loves getting creative inspiration from her home city, noting, “There are some really great storytelling, music and circus events around the city, so it’s hard to get bored.” Anna’s favorite part of working at DEVENEY is the people, she says, “The culture here is fun and supportive.”
