Kickstart!

Hello! My name's Phee and for the last 6 months I have been doing a Kickstarter with Flagship Framing as the Digital Content Creator, which is very soon coming to an end so I wanted to share with you what I've done and what my experience has been like. A Kickstarter is a government funded programme aimed at 16-24 year olds who are receiving universal credit. It's an excellent opportunity for small businesses to take on extra employees, and for young people experiencing unemployment to gain experience and training.

My role at Flagship has been to produce engaging content on the blog and social media, photograph the products and create email marketing campaigns. 

When I first started the new brochure was just coming out, and Alex and Sophie took me to the printers to see it being printed. This was an exciting experience for me as it was like the print room at my Art School but on a much larger scale. They even had a letterpress and bookbinding section!

They showed us how the pages go through printers which apply one colour at a time, Black, Cyan, Magenta and Yellow, which come together to create all of the colours you see in our brochure.

They also showed us a machine that measures the amount of each colour throughout the page, so that they could adjust it to how we wanted it.

I have attended several days at Digital Knowledge Exchange seminars to learn about digital marketing, social media and SEO.

These have been extremely useful and informative and have helped me to come a long way, as I knew nothing about marketing when I first started!

I wanted to improve on my photography skills, and since Alex and Sophie are also professional photographers they helped me a lot with this.

I learned about the exposure triangle and how to adjust the aperture and shutter speed to fix the brightness and focus of the image. Then Alex took me into Leeds City Centre to practice taking photos. These are some of the shots I got!

Siobhan's House!

Siobhan Murphy @interiorcurve is an interior designer who was a finalist on Interior Design Masters and is known for her flamboyant, maximalist style! She used some of our mouldings in her designs, and we had product photos taken in her stunning art deco home before I had started working at Flagship. So after seeing so many photos of her house I was so excited when I got to see it in person! She was in the process of writing an interior design book, and had asked my employer Alex to take photos of her home, and also let us take some more product photos. So I had chosen some frames for prints and some chevron samples, and we spent the day exploring and photographing her  beautiful home. 

I also learnt how to frame!

I really enjoyed learning how to use the machinery, and I hope that I can explore framing more in the future. It has been really interesting to learn about the industry and learn about different styles and methods of framing, and I love choosing different frames to best suit the artwork. 

I have really enjoyed my experience at Flagship, they have helped me set up as a Freelance content creator and I will be continuing to create awesome content for them! I think this has opened up a great deal of new opportunities for me and I'm really excited to see what the future holds for me!
