Squires, Seasons, and Battle Shields

I would like to take a post and talk about my excitement for my time at Hüify for the next 3 months!  I do believe that I’m finally finishing up all initiation phases and I cannot wait to dive into designing!  I’m apart of a great team, just look at us squires!  I’m looking forward to working together for common project goals and candy eating.

I know everyone has their own “favorite season” and you can submit your opinion (you are entitled to one or two 😉 )  later on.  Mine, however, is fall sliding into winter.  Why?  I’m glad you asked… First and foremost, there are several holidays in those seasons that bring people in all settings together (work and family.) There’s always awesome songs and new renditions of old songs.  PRESENTS (giving of course… and receiving.)  Do I need to drag fashion into it?  Boots, scarves, long sleeves, tights, hats, sweaters, coats, gloves, mittens, socks, flannel everything.. okay, tangent over..

Any-who, I was getting to my point, my season choice inspires more design from me somehow.  For instance (mini-tangent) I don’t know if you can, but I can smell snow in the air before it happens (my boyfriend thinks its weird) and that creates beautiful art work in my head just waiting to happen.  I hope to incorporate the same inspiration into any project I work on with Hüify in these next three months.

Lastly, while I was reading through the handbook that has nice interesting facts about Hüify I was instructed to draw up a medieval shield that has 4 icons that depict four things why I love about working for Hüify.  I’ve done just that and I will explain further…

Battle Shield

Battle Shield

  1. I love working with Hüify because I get to gain experience in working with a team, intense deadlines, customer satisfaction (instead of teacher satisfaction during school) and of course swordplay experience.
  2. I’ll be working with a team and I can’t stress enough how excited I am for that!  The graphic I drew is actually based off of my church’s graphic for guest services/host team.  It took me a while to realize that it’s actually three people standing in a circle together.
  3. By working with Hüify I am working towards securing a solid job when I’m finished with this program.  I am blessed that I get to gain that experience as well as enjoy my time and work.
  4. I love that I will have an active work environment to put my skills to use and apply them for a common goal.  I will be working with a team to complete a project together for customers, I wont be working on my own for a grade (which I’m sick of.)

Take a gander at the awesome Hüify website and you’ll see why I’m so pumped to get started!
