Check out what I got in the mail recently:
That’s right, business cards! Arguably one of my favorite perks of doing new things, in this case for my internship with Gladeo. I suppose there’s just something really satisfying about having your name on an official piece of affiliation, showing that you’re a part of a bigger whole and all that. I know I still have my first two semesters’ worth of Daily Titan editor business cards on me in case I need them.
These cards are particularly interesting in that they have the organization’s mission statement on the back. Making it white text on a black background creates an interesting dichotomy with the white on the front. Plus, having been asked by both of my main interviewed sources just what I was doing with Gladeo, it’s certainly useful to have the official version of the story readily available like this.
Though I’ve only done over-the-phone interviews thus far, I’ll definitely start to carry a few of these on my person as well so I can happily hand them out whenever I get the chance.
On that note, I do have my first two pieces for Gladeo more or less put together and turned in, so once they’re edited and I’ve been given whatever notes I need to improve upon or fix, I should be able to talk some more about the work I’ve been doing. After it shows up online, of course.
So hopefully look forward to that in the near future.
