My internship at TSN was quite enjoyable. I knew going in that this was not going to be the most creatively-stimulating position, but I was completely okay with it. Even though the designs I made were done through pre-made templates, it was still cool to look on TV and see something I made appear on SportsCentre. It was also cool to see how a TV network operates. I was also fortunate enough to help out with some other design projects (ex: prepare player headshots for curling tournaments). I do think if there are any aspiring graphic designers who want to work for TSN, but want to do more creative work, I would suggest looking for something on TSN’s social media side (maybe even BarDown).
Overall, I had a good time, learned a lot about the sports journalism industry, and will hopefully continue to grow my professional network.
