My name is Melissa, I'm 16 years old and I am attending the 11th grade of a Gymnasium in Neuss. At the moment I am supporting the TourismusSuite as a holiday jobber in the graphic division and I am now here for the third time. I became aware of this company through an internship in January 2018 and certainly did not want to leave. So I could not wait to work here again for the next holidays.
I also work privately with drawing programs like Photoshop and could prove and expand this knowledge here. Due to my interest in computer science, I have already programmed websites with HTML and CSS, which has helped me a lot here as well.
My main job is to design teasers for our blog posts and web pages. At the beginning I only created teasers for the blog entries, but then also for our homepage and finally for one of our customers.
At the moment I am also supporting a small project: the relaunch of our homepage www.tourismussuite.com. The four-year-old website of TourismusSuite should be modernized and made understandable and easy for everyone. It is intended to be a responsive one-page in semi-flat design (responsive means that the website is also presented in a user-friendly way on all mobile devices).
First, I did a research and created a schedule. A real challenge is the layout design, because the ideas in the team are very different and I have to balance all opinions and tastes. But it's really an exciting job where you can be quite creative, especially when using effects (for example, some elements should move when scrolling).
I learned a lot at the TourismusSuite and was able to ask many questions. The team is really nice and welcomed me warmly. I'm looking forward to coming back in my next vacation and learning new exciting things about web design and programming.
