The team at Northern Media were delighted at the beginning of October to welcome Thomas Leahy, our latest placement student from the University of Huddersfield.
Unlike most of our past Huddersfield University placement students who have generally come from journalism courses, Thomas is a Graphic Design student on a placement year. He has a range of skills that will make him a valuable asset to the Northern Media team, including extensive experience working with graphic design. Naturally, he has a highly creative side.
Thomas will be with us full time until the end of his course next year supporting our graphic design team with many of their responsibilities – these include web and newsletter design as well as general graphic design work such as creating social media infographics and design for print.
"Northern Media is a company that is growing quickly and I am thankful that I am a part of such a wonderful team. I have been here for a few weeks now and I have settled in and adapted to the working environment well,” said Thomas when asked for his thoughts on joining. “I am enjoying working with the team and being able to work on real life projects for clients. I feel that during my year-long placement I will gain a vast amount of experience and improve as a designer which will ultimately benefit me in my final year and chosen career.”
Meanwhile, Chris Elliott, Managing Director of Northern Media, said:
“In the past few years our partnership with Huddersfield University has grown from strength to strength and we are pleased to have taken on Thomas as our latest placement student. Graphic design is a cornerstone of what we do at Northern Media and having a talented and enthusiastic individual like Thomas supporting the team is fantastic.
“The relationship will be mutually beneficial, with Thomas being able to use his experience at Northern Media to contribute to his final degree grade. In his first few weeks he has settled in well and his graphic design talents have made him an ideal addition to the team.”
