Jessica Koschel,
trainee media designer

 

I come from Bochum and am now in my second year of training at MEDICE as a media designer, a varied and creative occupation that I have been enjoying doing since August 2013. The tasks in this area are wide-ranging. It began with producing employee visitors cards that are designed according to the established corporate identity (identifiable company design in our own company colours, company typeface, etc.) In addition we design brochures, flyers, invitations, folding boxes, packaging leaflets and advertising materials – sometimes printing, cutting and folding them ourselves too.

Not long ago our department acquired small photographic equipment in which we can produce packshots, for example. MEDICE provides us with good conditions for training - everyone there gets on really well with each other, like a big family. Furthermore there are trips out for the trainees, to which all the apprentices and instructors from all the individual departments are invited.

For all the staff there are Christmas celebrations, sports festivals and various courses for further education in languages, fitness or computer programs. The special thing for me in my occupation is that you can be really creative. As a media designer you don't need to be always geared to set standards but can often also design freely.

My path to an apprenticeship at MEDICE involved a very circuitous route. I didn't want a job doing exactly the same thing every day, but one with variety.

Before training as a media designer I went to various schools and did several work experience courses. Right before coming to MEDICE I went to a school for journalism, media design and photography. When I started at that school my top priority was still photography, which however shifted in three years of school to the area of media design.
