My two-month summer internship at fractal taught me the norms of working in an industry – timely delivery, client feedback, iterations etc. In the initial stages the work was extensive to the extent that my target was to deliver 1 App per day. During the course of my internship I was involved in the design of a total of 25 apps (Work Samples available on request) which included 3 top apps. I was also involved in a few other ongoing website redesign project as well as creating a brand identity for a firm.
I was lucky to be under the guidance of a wonderful set of mentors, who at all stages guided me in all aspects – from lessons in usability to things not to miss on weekends in Mumbai – the two month journey was an extensive learning experience.
1. “Mannu is a lovely person to have around and work with. Mannu worked with us while he was doing his internship at Fractal. He grasps requirements very quickly and works largely unsupervised. He has good design sensibilities and he can deliver quickly. He is a fast learner and eager to take on any amount of work. A great team player and a confident individual. His ability to respond to design briefs in a quick, efficient and innovative ways is commendable. He can be trusted to deliver hight quality and pixel perfect work even under pressure. An absolute pleasure to work with – I would highly recommend him.” August 10, 2012 – Priyanka Agrawal, Director & Partner, Fractal Ink Design Studio
