I'm doing a graphic design internship and have been working hard, writing down everything she wants me to find(I need to find pictures to go with her site). I showed my work to another girl who is designing the website and she said she liked it a lot, but when I showed them my intern leader she said they were too detailed . I Ten receive an email from her with even more detailed pictures as examples that she wants... This is only one example of how she's not happy with my work :( I'm starting to loose faith in myself but sucking it up lol! Is there anything I can do to make it easier? I write everything she wants me to find in the pictures down and then find them, but then it turns out she's not happy with them ... Eg: she asked me to find something that symbolizes what happens if the customer is loyal to the company in the future, something that symbolizes futuristic like a futuristic building etc...I found that, and then she said it doesn't connect with a customer...I found this futuristic car picture which I thought looked great, but she didn't even say anything when I showed it to her!....
Well it's an intership I'm duing during my holidays at university, was hoping this was going to be an opportunity for me for a full-time job, but not really happy with it :( I've completed the job now and she made me make examples with her images she found and one of mine and is going to show them to a higher level person to choose from...so, I'm kind of finished now but she wanted me to come in tomorrow again...I'm wondering wether I should quit my internship early or not..
I just don't understand what I'm doing wrong, she is giving me critic which I gladly take and write down every note she says and take it into consideration. The first week I found images that were too abstract and I said that's ok so I found loads of pictures that are more scenario based, she didn't want to see all of them because it would take too much time for her, so I chose the best ones, and even though they were scenario based, they were too "kitschy" and she started pointing out more abstract ones again...I just don't understand anymore, I felt like crying now because she said this was my last week to complete the task and now basically ignored all the pictures I found and added her own pictures to show to the boss and let him choose. We have creative differences she said but I only looked for what she asked me too.
What steps can I take to adapt to her expectations, start to become more productive, and save my internship?
