CMYK Design logoWith a portfolio which boasts clients ranging from the Scottish Prison Service to the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh, CMYK’s design skills are impressive to say the least. However, my time at CMYK Towers did not involve improving my own design skills. Instead I came to learn about the fast paced world of magazine advertising.
Most of my time was spent on the hunt for potential advertisers for Scotland in Trust (the customer magazine for members of The National Trust for Scotland), and aurora (the passenger magazine for Highlands and Islands Airports). This has seen me on the phone to spectacular country estates, numerous outdoor clothing companies and even the agency which handles the marketing for Duchy Originals – though sadly not to HRH himself.
Working with advertising has been completely absorbing, and the support and enthusiasm of the CMYK team has made this placement a truly fantastic experience.
