John emailed asking to reflect on any work experience I had over summer. The three questions didn't really relate to my summer as I did not seek studio placements once I left uni at the end of second year. I am glad I had a relaxing summer and stayed sane and ready to come back into third year. One thing I have definitely learnt was that I do not wish to work as an in-house designer. Since coming back, my outlook on the type of designer I want to be has changed, so I do think the type of summer I had, even though it may not have been professional, was personally for the best.
