Meet the Team: Our Winter Intern, Bryn!
Q: Tell us about your internship!
Constellation & Co. was my first internship and it was so fun! It was awesome to be able to meet and connect with a group of people who are as passionate about art as I am. One of the best parts of my internship was the huge variety of things I got to do and learn about. I helped with the retail shop, which included opening and closing the shop on time, handling money, and helping out customers. I also got to learn about the business side, and how Constellation takes an idea and makes it into a card. I loved learning about the art of letterpress too and watching how each card gets created. I got to create a window design, help out with the catalogue, and design three of my own cards, which was super fun and a very special experience for me!
Q: What is your favorite thing about interning at Constellation & Co.?
My favorite thing about interning at Constellation would have to be restocking the cards and making sure the shop looks nice. I love greeting cards and loved the process of packaging and pricing that made each card look beautiful. I also loved opening the shop first thing in the morning. Mornings represent new beginnings and a fresh start to me, and I loved prepping the shop for the busy day ahead.
We had the pleasure of hosting a talented intern this Winter named Bryn! It's been a long time since we had an intern, but she was too special to pass up. She came to us with a passionate interest in greeting card design, a very unique artistic style, and an eagerness to learn. It's been a delight having her in the shop and showing her the ropes! She grew up in our beautiful neighborhood, Magnolia, so we knew it was meant to be. We're hoping (fingers crossed!) to see her again this summer! Here's what Bryn had to say about herself and her time with us:
Q: Describe yourself in 6 words or less.
Passionate, driven, optimistic, creative and adventurous!
Q: What are you doing when you're not in the shop? (Other jobs, hobbies, etc.)
When I’m not at the shop, I’m usually drawing! I love thinking up new characters to draw and creating backstories for them. I love going vintage shopping, too. Trove in Ballard is one of my favorite shops for unique and beautiful pieces. I love clothing that has a story behind it.
Q: What is your favorite place in Seattle? (Shops, restaurants, parks, etc.)
I have so many favorite places in Seattle, it’s so hard to pick just one! I love going to the Ballard Locks, especially in the summertime. I love seeing the huge ships sail slowly by, love to hear the thundering rush of water as it pours into the locks. It’s a place that is both peaceful and very busy. Most of all, I’ve always loved seeing the salmon jump out of the water! To me, the Locks is both ordinary and magical and embodies the uniqueness and the industry that we have here in Seattle.
