Graphic designer Raewyn Brandon secured a New York internship with popular online portfolio platform Behance straight after finishing her study. She was then offered the full-time position of Brand & Communications Designer at the company.

This involved a lot of time designing printed materials. “I made sure anything printed that left Behance not only communicated a cohesive message, but also looked beautiful and in brand,” says Brandon.

Moving from Hamilton to the fast pace of New York proved a big transition, says Brandon, and she learned a lot about the industry. Her work has now featured in a number of books, magazines and websites around the world, including Adweek's Top 100 Talent, Identity Suite - Visual Identity in Stationery, Top Graphic Design Series, Threaded Magazine and Brand Design Magazine.

After several years at Behance, Brandon has moved on to pursue international travel.
