Morris Creative Group is excited to introduce two of our latest interns! Both are Tennessee natives attending the University of Tennessee in Knoxville. We are glad to have Melody and Katie with us.
Melody is our design intern. She hails from Chattanooga, TN and is a senior working toward her BFA in Graphic Design at UT. She chose a Graphic Design major after dabbling in the art during high school. Melody came to MCG due to wonderful recommendations from friends who had previously interned with us. Her friends praised MCG’s friendly environment and the amount they learned from working on a variety of projects. Melody agrees with her friends, and her favorite part of working with MCG is being surrounded by positive, hard-working people. Melody says she hopes to sharpen her creative abilities, learn the general ins and outs of a professional environment, and figure out what she needs to improve on while at MCG. When she isn’t hard at work, she enjoys catching up with her friends; spending time with her dog, Lucy, and learning new things (she is currently working on Adobe After Effects).
What was your first job? Working as a server at a retirement center.
What do you love most about Knoxville? There’s a lot to love about Knoxville: the history, people, festivals, etc.… but the thing I love most is how at home I feel when I’m here.
What is your favorite UT tradition? Decorating The Rock.
What is your dream job? A place where I can show off my creativity, constantly learn new things, filled with interesting people, and preferably in San Francisco.
Why San Francisco? I have family there and I like the area.
What is your favorite movie? I don’t really have a favorite, but I’m up for anything with Leonardo DiCaprio in it!
Katie is our marketing intern. Katie was raised in Lenoir City, TN. She is one of our youngest interns and is a sophomore studying Communication Studies at UT. Katie chose Communications as her focus because of her love for writing and dislike for math and chemistry. She stumbled upon our internship opening on Facebook, and after browsing the MCG portfolio and meeting the group, she knew she wanted to work with us. Katie loves working with the group because she appreciates the creative environment and sense of camaraderie in the office. While at MCG, she hopes to “gain more experience from working on a variety of social media platforms, learning how to adapt to very diverse audiences for each client.” When she’s not at work, Katie likes milkshakes, long walks on the beach, and doing DIY crafts.
What was your first job? I was a server at Cracker Barrel.
What do you love most about Knoxville? I like finding art. There’s one alley near Market Square that is painted from end to end with different, unique murals.
What is your favorite UT tradition? The Pride of the Southland.
What is your dream job? Not sure yet! I’m only on my second year in college, so I’m still learning all of my options. I would really like something that challenges my creativity and uses my writing skills.
What is your favorite movie? Anything with a sassy girl and a handsome prince.
