Apprenticeship Recap – Victoria Escobar

Victoria Escobar

BBG was thrilled to have Design and Branding Apprentice Vicky Escobar join us for our 1st ever Virtual (Covid-Safe) Apprenticeship working from Florida, with our team in Chicago.

Vicky went above and beyond each and every task set before her. Not only would she tackle the task, she would tackle far beyond the task. We love working with you Vicky, and you are always welcome to design and brand with our team!

Jason Schwartz, Creative Director, Partner

This summer was one that no one will ever forget, and although a lot of things didn’t go as planned for the world, I was lucky enough to have been able to work as BBG’s first fully remote apprentice. Starting an apprenticeship at a new place can be hard, but on top of that, having it be 100% remote presents a whole new set of challenges.

I was lucky enough to be in a place that welcomed that challenge, and believed in me to take it on. One would think that being a remote intern would affect your learning, but that wasn’t the case with BBG. I was able to learn many things on the job, and some things that I learned were because we are remote, such as video conferencing with clients, and learning how to manage projects on my own time.

What is the most important thing you learned during your apprenticeship?

Working in an educational environment, such as school, is very different from being in the workforce. In school the only “client” you really have is yourself. Developing work for someone else can be intimidating, but it’s a skill all designers must have. This skill is probably the most important thing I learned and gained. I had to stand by my design decisions presented to clients, and be confident in my own work.

What is the best part of working at BBG?

Working at BBG really gave me the experience and opportunity to explore projects on my own. I was allowed to develop my own design directions as well as pitch to clients. This really has been different from other internships/apprenticeships that I’ve had. I felt more like part of a team, rather than “the intern.”

Besides the opportunities that I was given, I also was able to work alongside amazing designers that really pushed me to challenge my own creative thinking, and teach me valuable skills. You will be surrounded by people that want you to get the most out of this apprenticeship and look out for you, which is not something you can say happens at every apprenticeship.

What should someone know before applying for a BBG apprenticeship?

Anyone applying to an apprenticeship at BBG should know that this is a very hands on opportunity. Don’t expect to be making copies or prepping export files. You will be doing actual design work for real clients.

At times it can be stressful and tough, but having a supportive team behind you and seeing your work appreciated by the client makes the stress of being thrown into it exciting.

BBG is lucky enough to have our work side by side with companies like L’Oreal Paris, Glossier, Neutragena, La Mer, Estee Lauder and more.

About Elle:

Elle was founded in Paris the immediate aftermath of World War II and first sold as a supplement to France-Soir, edited at the time by Pierre Lazareff. Hélène Gordon-Lazareff, Elle’s pioneering founder, returned to Paris from New York City to create a unique publication that grappled with the many forces shaping the lives of women in France in 1945.

Its 100th issue, published on 14 October 1947, featured the work of Christian Dior just eight months after his debut show. Likewise, Brigitte Bardot graced her first Elle cover at age 17, on 7 January 1952, months before her screen debut in Manina, the Girl in the Bikini. By the 1960s, Elle had a readership of 800,000 across France and was said to “not so much reflect fashion as decree it.” This dominance was reflected in the famous slogan: “Si elle lit, elle lit Elle (If she reads, she reads Elle)”.

In 1985, Elle launched in Britain and the United States. Elle.com was launched in 2007.

About Equilibria:

Co-Founder Marcy Capron Vermillion’s life forever changed after receiving some CBD as a gift for her 30th birthday. An incredible success story, she was able to drastically reduce her reliance on pharmaceutical drugs, and tackle her mental health and spinal nerve pain issues. So naturally, as an engineer and perpetual innovator, she chose to learn everything possible about this powerful health agent, eventually leading workshops and gatherings on the medicinal and regulatory power of cannabis for women. (Northwestern, Co-Founder Polymathic, acquired by DevMynd)

Co-Founder Coco Meers is a busy tech operator, investor, advisor, and – most importantly – mom of 2. CBD gives her peace of mind to be even more present with her family and relieves pain from her autoimmune spine condition.  (Princeton, Booth MBA, L’Oreal, Founder PrettyQuick acquired by GRPN)

For women, by women. That’s Equilibria. We understand that female bodies are different, from cyclical changes to the very real challenges of menopause and childbirth and everything in-between. So at EQ, we believe quality matters. We believe service matters. And women deserve a CBD brand that can deliver all of the above!

Equilibria Crains Chicago Business

The BBG team would like to extend a major shout-out to the Equilibria team on their 2019 progress as they mature from concept to major contender.

Equilibria is now poised to take a sizable chunk of the CBD tech space as they tighten focus, introduce new strategy and expand their line-up of product.

Read the full article at Crain’s Chicago Business.

CBD is No Joke

As the CBD space explodes at a rate of 7x in 2019 commercial attention has been focused on marijuana, as states such as Illinois and Michigan have legalized recreational use. But hemp is a bigger market with fewer barriers to entry, making it attractive to startups and established companies alike.

BBG has had an ongoing relationship with both Marcy Capron Vermillion and Coco Meers from previous business offerings and have been working with Equilibria since 2018.
