Here are just a few examples of roles our Graphic Design interns have taken on before:

  1. Graphic Design

    Graphics are highly influential, especially in advertising and on social media, because the human eye is far more drawn to pictures than to text. Graphic designers are needed to create attention-grabbing titles, logos, images, and website layouts in almost every industry you can think of. As a graphic design intern, you will be given the chance to shadow a graphic designer and may get to show off your creative skills on one of their current projects.

  2. Fashion

    Graphic design is highly relatable to fashion, and as an artist, you will already have many of the skills prized in this industry. Some interns develop their graphic design skills by working on branding and marketing for fashion houses or retailers. Others work on larger canvases such as set and backdrop designs for runway shows and other industry events. Whatever their role, graphic design interns have the potential to go far in the fashion industry.

  3. Communications

    If you have graphic design skills, you will be highly sought after in the communications industry. Graphic design interns often get to assist with all facets of the company’s communications strategy – including branding, advertising, and social media presence. Interns are asked to design ads for social media, web, and print releases, and may also work on multimedia promotional materials like videos and commercials.

  4. UX Design

    User Experience (UX) Design is a relatively new but rapidly expanding field within the world of computing and graphic design. Interns in this sphere will get to learn more about how to make the user experience on websites smooth, easy, and engaging. This might involve running tests or contacting beta users to gather their feedback, and you could be allowed to pitch your ideas on how to make the site more accessible in design meetings.

“I think the most important thing that I'll take away from this experience is being able to have worked with so many different people from different backgrounds. It really gives you a more open mind on how to go about things and how to face challenges.“

“Living in London and interning here has taught me that I am a very adaptable person. I've decided that I want to join a touring company and travel around the world.“

Chloe Schneider University of California Irvine

“Sometimes when you’re looking for an internship it’s hard to find somewhere where you’re doing the actual work. If you don’t show up a day it doesn’t really affect anything but here you’re actually a part of a team where you can see the work you’ve done.“

Katie Jones Skidmore College

“This remote internship helped me to realize that I want to study computer science and that this is something that I'm passionate about. It's also something that I wouldn't have explored had I not done this internship.“
