New Beginnings at Lill Studio!

Greetings everyone! My name is Tiffany and I am Lill Studio's new Marketing intern! The past three weeks have been nothing short of a truly amazing experience that included moving to the Windy City, meeting new people, going on all sorts of interviews, and eventually settling into my awesome position here at Lill! Here is a little background information on me and how exactly I landed this great opportunity:
  • I am a junior at Aquinas College in Grand Rapids, Michigan. I'm currently working toward my major in Business Administration and Marketing.
  • Fashion, marketing, and advertising are three of my main career passions.
  • I was given the opportunity to intern at Lill Studio through a program called Chicago Semester, where college juniors and seniors are given help finding internships in the big city.
  • Although I had three different interviews, I decided on Lill because I greatly admire the story of how Jen started the company, how Lill has evolved so much from its beginning, the amazing sense of community everyone shares, and, let's be real, who wouldn't love working around some the of cutest handbags ever made?!

My first two weeks at Lill have been nothing short of incredible! The first visit here for my interview was quite the adventure (including getting lost for about twenty minutes because I was still new to the whole idea of public transportation). Luckily, I made it to the studio on time and instantly fell in love with the feel of the company. The brightly colored walls and beautiful fabric swatches instantly lifted my mood that was previously dampened by the gray snowstorm outside. After my interview, I instantly knew that this was the place I wanted to intern. And thankfully, I am now doing just that! I've helped out with a lot of different projects in many different areas of the company, and I've loved learning what each person and department does. Seeing how it all comes together to form this amazing company was a truly great way to start off the job! I'll be here for the next three months and look forward to seeing how the company evolves and the new projects with which I will be involved. And, of course, I look forward to designing my own versions of the many Lill bags with which I've already fallen in love! Until the next post, stay warm and stay chic, Lill lovers!
