Hey y’all! This is Roxanne here, and I’m one of the new graphic design interns for Burning Oak Studios. I work under Bradley, the Art Director who has been blogging up until now. I’ve been helping out with some of our DVD packaging, and now, sprucing up the blog, (which I’m pleased to say is looking good after a lot of tweaking!) Feel free to leave any comments about how this new design can be better…we’d appreciate it
It’s been really exciting working here, but at times, plain scary. There are a lot of new aspects to working in a professional environment that are very different from plugging away at the school computer labs, or working on projects for friends. When you go into an already established work environment- you have to adapt to how things are done there. While it’s been really satisfying, the biggest learning experience for me so far has been adjusting to becoming a mobile worker.
Whether you’re just going a couple blocks to meet a freelance client at a coffee shop, or you’re going on a trip out-of-state to a conference of like-minded individuals, having a laptop and maintaining it properly is a great skill that can help you get to that job you really desire.
Rain Rain- You Can’t Just HOPE It’ll Go Away
Whether you like it or not, when maintaining a laptop, facing up to Mother Nature is something you’re going to have to do sooner or later. So a good investment from the get-go is to invest in a waterproof bag. Even if you drive to work, that short 30-second walk to your office building could mean annihilation for your laptop. Here are three water-proof laptop bag options intended for a student, a young working professional, and an urban-jungle navigator.
So, that’s all for now- and if you all out there think of any other tips for how to protect your laptop while on the go, or have experience with these bags, just comment and let us know!
This is Roxanne signing out, and I’ll be back with more tips from my learning experiences here at Burning Oak Studios.
