Hi, my name is Rabia and I have done 3 weeks internship at TLD. Coming to TLD has made my passion in design grow even further. After these 3 weeks at TLD I have gained first-hand experience in what work life is really like and how to work to deadlines but also have fun at the same time by bringing a smile to the team by asking for a cup of tea or helping them out with their work which they have sent to me to do.
Insight, advice, news and chit chat
Hi, I’m Oscar, and I worked at TLD for one month. I recommend anyone reading, who is planning to apply for or who is going to work at TLD as an intern, to at least read the tips I have accumulated throughout the internship. It will give you a head start and trust me when I tell you this, anyone who can impresses Keren is worthy. I also think that if you are reading this, you should read the blogs from my fellow previous intern brothers and sisters.
It’s my first embedded Periscope! And how lucky am I to have gotten this opportunity to film these two talented people.
How the world’s leading community of entrepreneurs (EO) is helping small businesses
As a small business owner, I have a very strong empathy with my clients. I think this empathy serves me well as I understand the time and cash constraints that prevent them from going all gung ho into the marketing activities I advocate.
On Sunday 22nd June the London TLD girls (me, Elisa, Camille, Tamlyn) and Tamlyn’s sister Kim ran in a 5KM event at London’s Olympic Park called Pretty Muddy – with lots of mud involved. It was an obstacle course, and included crawling through tubes, stepping through tires, climbing ropes and sliding down slides.
We have a tradition at TLD to suprise people when it’s not even their birthday anymore. It started years ago when Tamlyn had a surprise party in the office after the boys plotted the surprise on Skype.
April was an unusual month. As you may know, we have a number of South Africans who work for Top Left Design – Tamlyn, Amy, and JP – and in addition, I used to live there and half my family is South African. Amy lives in Cape Town, and Tamlyn was getting married (to Jack, who is English) in South Africa.
Amy and I decided it would be a good idea for me to visit South Africa, and she and I would both go to Tamlyn’s wedding together!
It’s my annual tradition to write a blog against all odds on International Women’s Day – no matter where I am or what I am doing. To show the portability of publishing – and accomplishing something extra on any given day. The first year I was in Austria on a skiing trip, and last year I was in Singapore and wrote about achieving #Inbox Zero.

My internship experience and first hand tips
Hi! My name is Rhea, I am fourteen and interested in design and copywriting. After spending a very fast two week placement at TLD, I’ve experienced a part of the working world and how it can be great fun with the TLD crowd. I’ve also seen just how a hot cup of tea or coffee can put a smile on anyone here!
Well, what can I say?
What an amazing week of TLD team building, ski fun and laughter! Being away together really brought us closer together – being with workmates outside of a work environment makes you get to know them on a more personal level, and really builds you as a team.
