Hello Daily Grommet Readers!
Since this is my first blog post, I want to take this chance to introduce myself. I’m Claire, the Daily Grommet’s newest summer intern. You may have seen me in the previous blog post about moving day. Like Julia, I am an industrial designer from the Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia (just a little further back in my career than she is). I first heard about the Daily Grommet when Jules (I’m sure prompted in part by Julia) decided to take a trip down to Savannah back in October to check out SCAD and what it has to offer. I got to attend a lecture given by Jules about the Daily Grommet; I was immediately drawn to the variety of products offered as well as the individual attention each of them is given. They even decided to feature a product by a SCAD student - a clock by furniture student Charles Heydinger. After watching the Daily Grommet since the fall and reading the blog, it has been such an amazing experience for me as an intern to be given a look behind the scenes. It’s fascinating to experience the day to day running of a company like Daily Grommet; I have only been here a week and already I feel as if I have learned so much in such short a time!
