Internship Fall 2020 – Alexis


Sweater weather, apple picking, all things pumpkin spice, and back to school sales.

These are just a few things women (and men) across the US look forward to during the hottest of a summer day. But for Harford Designs, we were excited to grow our family with the addition of 3 new fall semester interns: Marianne, Nicole, and Alexis.

Over the summer we adapted the internship for COVID-19 and we are still going strong: weekly virtual team meetings that include brief lessons and peer review; weekly one-on-one’s between student and the owner to discuss projects, learn techniques, and answer design questions; 3-way client calls for students to observe how marketing content is decided for clients social media and websites, and the creation of a video library for quick access to items previously discussed and common questions.

Welcome to the team, ladies!
