Introducing Republik’s Summer Intern Team: Amélie, Mathilde & Camille

This summer, an extension of ladies joined our team. This talented trio of interns stepped into our realm to test the waters of digital content marketing for a couple weeks/months. These ladies (well worth getting to know) were asked a couple questions at random.

Here’s some Real Talk with Amélie, Mathilde & Camille: The (lovely) faces behind the Républik social team.

1- The project that you worked on which you are the most proud of?

Amélie:

I’m proud to have gotten commercial contracts in fashion for modelling, independently, meaning without an agent. All of this thanks to word of mouth and social media!

Mathilde:

Playground! I am proud to have created the design behind this new internship program and I learned a lot about using after-effect by making visual animations.

Camille:

The ‘Tuning In With’ article series for Hennessy. The uncovering of stories is very interesting to me. I'm about finding what's underneath the surface of things.

2-Talk to us about brands that you admire. Why do they stand out according for you?

Amélie

The Montreal company New Regime stand out by their digital marketing strategies. Big stars have worn their clothes like Machine Gun, Kelly and recently, Rihanna wore their T-shirt on a picture that received a lot of buzz. I would also say Larose Paris, a local brand that is not recognized internationally.

Mathilde:

I really admire the studio Caserne. It’s a design agency that, according to me, does beautiful projects. They stand out because they create design that people remember. I am equally fascinated by the work of Vallée Duhamel. This video studio has its own unique style, making their projects unique. Their crazy and colorful universe pleases me very much.

Camille:

I root for any projects that stand out of the norms box.
WE WORK, for pushing the boundaries of how we work. VICE, their magazine especially: They’re the voice of the youth and are finding innovative ways to spread their presence. IDEO, for unlocking the creative potential of every space.

3-What percentage would you attribute to talent, to perseverance and to chance when it comes to success? Why?

AMÉLIE:

According to me, talent qualifies itself by the perseverance to practice, whereas luck is the capacity to seize opportunities. It’s 100% my mantra towards being successful.

Mathilde:

I would say 40% talent and 60% perseverance. Yes it’s good to have luck too, but you can’t just count on that to succeed. The most important is perseverance, motivation and effort. The talent has to be there, but without the rest, it’s not worth much.

Camille:

I think it’s a mixture of the 3 components. Chance and an innate talent are important to have, they might spark an initial passion, but if we’re not perseverant in what we do, then the rest will most likely fall short.

4-How do you stay motivated when faced with tight deadlines?

Amélie:

The tight deadlines themselves are a big motivation. I am often more creative in these contexts.

Mathilde:

I don’t have a choice, I have a due date, my work has to be done! On the contrary, a tight deadline motivates me a lot more than if I have a lot more time for the project.

Camille:

I am a person who is attracted to intensity, therefore a big rush doesn’t faze me.

5-What are you working on during your free time? What dreams are your pursuing?

AMÉ:

On a project in Fashion and on my career as a model/actrice. I’m daydreaming of love, travelling, sharing, learning, balance and independence.

Mathilde:

My freelancing contracts take over my free time. I like working on myself, being my own boss and I’m dreaming of leaving to a heavenly destination, opening a hostel with my boyfriend and creating a serigraphy workshop where I could realize my projects.

Mathilde Graphic Designer

Mathilde Noblet

Camille:

Writing, reading, travelling, wining, dining . I’m a person of simple pleasures and human connection. I would say that my time is split somewhere in between my relationships, withdrawing myself in café’s and walking around the city.

6-What tools, books, references, applications help you in your everyday work?

Amélie:

I use the 32 go on my iphone. Google drive is essential, all the social platforms and Snapseed, my essential go-to to touch up pictures.

Mathilde:

My work tools are la suite adobe, my notebook and my pen. When it comes to my work references, I inspire myself a lot from the internet, by going on sites like Inspiration Grid or Design Inspirationand I equally keep myself informed by reading LaPresse.

Camille:

Music, synonyms dictionary & café parvis coffee.

7- When did you hear about Republik for the first time?

Amélie:

I heard about agency for the the first time when I was in an entrepreneurship program and I was analysing competition because I wanted to launch my own agency with a colleague. I thankfully abandoned the idea and I’m proud to be learning in the midst of an experienced team that works with amazing clients.

Mathilde:

Last March, when I was looking for a summer job, I saw the ad for a graphic designer on a job research site.

Camille:

During a conference that JP Shoiry gave at my school last year.

8-What skills do you think of aquired by working in our team?

Amélie:

Learn to organize my creative thinking, enrich my professional competencies in branding and digital marketing, but mostly, become a specialist in my domain.

Mathilde:

I think i’m acquiring experience mostly, but I’m equally learning about deadlines and the rolling of an agency. I also greatly bettered my skills in after-effect!

Camille:

Better my writing skills, sharpen my voice in all manners of communication & real life field experience in an agency.

9-Quel compte instagram nous suggérerais- tu de suivre dès maintenant et pourquoi?

Amélie:

Other than @republik.social
My favorites are the same as 500 K other people in the world, I would say I like every post from @CLO & @V.ri0t because they’re inspiring and present different trends in fashion.

Mathilde:

I suggest you to follow @thesenseofcreativity. It’s an account that reunites the gems of the illustration world and it gives me a lot of inspiration.

Camille:

@stylebop for all that is style related.
@coevalmagazine & @floraaandform arts & culture.
@Le_Pigeon & @chloecleroux beautiful, raw images.
@myeldesign local femme-made jewelry with a lovely feed.

It’s by experience that we acquire more knowledge about our field of interest. It’s mainly for this reason that we launched our new internship program: Playground. The next recruiting period will be in January. Stay in standby if this is something that interests you!
