These sections throughout the book are great! I appreciate how the book focuses on highlighting those ( with graphic design backgrounds) who have different types of positions within a variety of places; giving us an inside peak of what they do. This shows that as designers we don't work in just one kind of place. Like Zoe Bortz (Junior graphic designer for the New York City Ballet). Zoe works on the more 'straight forward design', creating season brochures, basic typesetting, or image edits. I think for a junior designer this is great experience, allowing you to get to know a brand, while finding the balance between not drifting out of a brands style, but still creating unique pieces that aren't redundant.
