Having graduated, I picked up the physical yellow pages (you know, because they existed still) and contacted every company in Brussels that had something to do with the web. I landed a few interviews and chance brought me to mistersuper.com online store.
It's no longer around, but this is where I learned the ropes for interactive animated content for the web. I made all manner of animations/games/banners/features with MisterSuper and his friend SupaCat. The store sold consumer electronics, but also gadgets like lavalamps and even design furniture. I started with mostly photoshop and illustrator work, but by the time I left I was doing mostly actionscript coding :)
