Megan Morris, RHP '14

Megan Morris did her internship with John Kosh, a graphic designer in Hollywood.
This summer I had an internship with John Kosh, a well-known graphic designer in Hollywood. His iconic album cover designs include The Beatles' "Abbey Road," The Eagles’ “Hotel California,” The Who’s’ “Who’s Next,” Linda Ronstadt’s “Simple Dreams,” and Electric Light Orchestra’s “Out of the Blue.” During the summer, I was privileged  enough to work on a book cover and two album covers, both tribute albums, for Dan Fogelberg and The Kinks. 
 
I originally heard of John Kosh (who goes by Kosh) during class with my RHP photo teacher Mrs. Kandel-Scott. Mrs. K. found an article on Kosh which she thought related to an art project I was working on, and so she passed it on for me to read. In senior year my English teacher Mrs. Taylor assigned a paper in which we had to interview a professional in our interested field of study. I found Kosh's office phone number and called to schedule an appointment. The interview went extremely well. I met Kosh and Susan, who are the owners of Ten Worlds production company, and truly lovely people all around. At the end of the interview, I asked Kosh if he would let me be his intern for two weeks at the end of my senior year (a graduation requirement). He instantly said he would love to have me and that is how I became Kosh's first intern.
 
The internship flew by as I was absolutely thrilled to be surrounded with talent.
 
During my freshman year of college, Kosh, Susan and I stayed in touch. I even flew back home in October to attend one of their art shows. It was an honor to be invited. When I came home for summer, I visited the dynamic duo, and asked if they needed any help. Just like that I was working on famous CD covers in Hollywood every day. At the end of summer, Kosh mentioned that he would love to have me back anytime, and so I plan to intern/work with him for the next few years, possibly even more. Rolling Hills Prep provided me the opportunities to make some connections and gather experience, and I am incredibly grateful I seized the chance when it was given to me.
