Successful Work Experience

What they do:

DesignBySoap specialise in creating info graphics and social media marketing. Their main service is tailored web design for companies. They’ve worked with other huge web names such as Google and Yahoo, right through to car info graphics for Nissan and Ford. There really isn’t much they cant cover!!

I had been asked to go down for a days work experience and although they are based in Hereford I managed to drive down.

Final graphics for MoneySupermarket


I learned alot about how to put together different kinds of graphics and even more about creating texts into something visual and exciting. I had so much fun working with the team and learning all about web design, interactive page displays and working hands on with clients that wanted specific things.
