I began interning with PR Consulting in NYC– a brand development and PR firm for fashion, beauty and lifestyle industries — a week ago, and the first task I was assigned was to organize all of the magazines in the copy room. Basically, I spent three hours stacking, alphabetizing and reorganizing three-years-worth of magazines, that at one-point featured or mentioned any of the 72 brands represented by PR Consulting.
At first the task seemed pretty monotonous and never-ending, but I was allowed to keep any of the magazines that were duplicates or outdated. To a magazine-lover like myself, this was a small-scale Christmas. While flipping through the June issue of Elle Magazine, I found a recipe for a fun summer drink made by Brian Atwood — one of the designers that I’m working with this summer.
