I am looking for an opportunity which would continue to develop my understanding of design as a service and a creative process. I am also looking for exposure to the team of people who influence how a project develops. I would like to gain further awareness of the tasks that are necessary for that project to be realized, from client meetings and conceptualization to construction administration.
