My name is Marta Caro and I obtained an Undergraduate Degree in Design in Elisava in 2012. Shortly after, and with a great desire to venture into the professional world, I had the opportunity to work at New York as a trainee for the well-known global design consultancy 2x4.
The thing is, when I sent my portfolio to 2x4, I didn't even imagine that they would be ever interested in my profile. I knocked on doors dauntlessly, because for me it was like a game of self-assurance, and I didn't have anything planned. The next day I received an email from the consultancy. I couldn't believe it! I was about to have one of the most important adventures of my life! After a chaotic Skype interview, they accepted my application, and they told me that I should start preparing everything, because they were waiting for me in a few months.
In 2x4 I had the opportunity to work with clients such as Prada, Pamm Museum, Rubin Museum of Art, Design Within Reach or Herman Miller, among others. I also got along very well with my co-workers, so that today I’m still befriended with them. I also found out certain cultural distinctions. Americans are very open-minded people, but at the same time it is difficult to establish a connection that goes beyond.
