Through the program, people were invited to take part in a series of challenges to showcase their creativity for the chance to earn a four-week paid internship at leading creative agency Grey in the UK and Germany. After submitting several creative designs using the MagicBook Pro and Affinity Apps and impressing in an interview, Katie Richardson from South West London was announced as the winning candidate who will take up the coveted internship position in the London office, whilst José Mendes from Portugal will be joining Grey’s German office. Speaking about the experience, Katie said:

Katie Richardson

“Creativity and design have always been a big part of my life, so the Stand Out with HONOR global creative program was the perfect platform to support my career ambitions. As many students can relate, 2020 has been a difficult year with limited opportunities to build up a strong creative portfolio or network, so I’m thrilled I’ve earnt the opportunity to work with some of the best in the business to help propel my career forward. I can’t wait to see what 2021 will bring for the creative industry.”
