Adjusting back into a forty-hour work week after a very comfortable camping/hippy lifestyle out of the back of a 4Runner can be difficult. But making it easier is everyone at Aasman, who have been wonderful in accepting me as their summer intern.

I just finished my third year of school at the Alberta College of Art and Design in Calgary with a major in graphic design, soon to enter my fourth and final year. Exhausted and ready for adventure at the end of the semester, my boyfriend and I packed up his 4Runner and decided we were heading north. After an extended and beautiful drive, we set up camp (literally) in Whitehorse and were looking for work.

Portfolio in hand I did a bit of researching on the design scene in town and approached Aasman with sweaty palms and crossed fingers. So, now, a week under my belt and I’m ready for more. The energy in the studio is inspiring and with many friendly people to point me in the right direction I think I will make it.

With the weeks passing here doing something I really love and my weekends spent in the mountains or a canoe, I just may never leave (cause no one’s ever said that before).
