Graphic design student Doroteja Samstur on Erasmus+ practical training in Malaga, Spain

Graphic Design

Dotoreja Samastur, a student of the Media Production – Graphic design module, went to Malaga, Spain, with the help of the Erasmus+ programme, more specifically to practical training in the company Southtours, which organizes various activities for tourists in the cities of Malaga, Granada and soon also in Seville.

The first day was both exciting and stressful for Doroteja, as it was the first time she had left home alone for so long and so far. However, the initial stress quickly turned into excitement as on the very first day she was introduced to the beautiful city where she would spend the coming months. She quickly made contact with her new colleagues, who warmly welcomed her. She spent the first week taking part in various Southtours activities, where she received hands-on training to better understand what the company does, what their values are and what value they offer to tourists. After learning how the company works, she was able to start her work.

“I quickly noticed that the company is constantly expanding and upgrading, which requires, among other things, an expert in graphic design. I am extremely grateful that the company offered me the opportunity to collaborate and contribute to the company’s graphic identity. My working environment is also flexible, which also allows me enough free time to explore the beautiful city.”

Doroteja’s tasks include the preparation of marketing and promotional materials, graphic design for social networks, and the design of flyers and other printed materials. She also studies old graphic materials and improves them. She is also involved in the company’s activities, such as taking and processing photos for use on social networks, as well as filming and editing video content for the popular TikTok platform, which is increasingly important for business promotion. She takes care of the company’s overall graphic image and promotion on social networks, which is a very interesting challenge for her.

In her free time, she has already visited some of Malaga’s attractions, tasted some great food and enjoyed the city’s beach. She has also made new friends. She was lucky to arrive in Malaga at the beginning of August, as she had the opportunity to experience the popular week-long Feria de Malaga festival. Every year, this festival offers an insight into Spanish culture, traditional costumes, music, dances and, of course, delicious food. It is a great and fun event that she will always remember.

“In the next two months, I plan to visit other places nearby, as Andalusia has many wonderful places I still want to discover. I am looking forward to new challenges, work and trips.”
