Nease Communications Academy Digital Design Students Visit Leonard’s Studios

Recently, Digital Design students traveled to Leonard’s Studio, located in St. Augustine. The students had the opportunity to tour the facility, getting a first-hand look at the digital design work, photography and videography services, and printing processes that take place on-site.  Students met with Leonard’s Vice President, Randy Sellers (who is also the grandson of Leonard’s founder); the company’s NE Florida Sales and Service Representative, Lisa Dowling; as well as their photography coordinator and public relations coordinator.  The students learned about how these professionals got to where they are in their careers, and had the chance to ask questions.  In addition to learning about the history of Leonard’s, the scope of the company now, and finding out where the company is headed in terms of social media marketing, our Academy students had the chance to learn about possible summer internship opportunities. It was a great trip! Many thanks to Communications Academy Advisory Board Chairwoman Lisa Urban for this fantastic opportunity!
