Job Description

Our summer program is a paid, 10-week internship for rising college seniors and graduate students interested in helping to create meaningful consumer experiences. The program will challenge you to think creatively and question what it means to develop an experience whether designing for the digital space, print media, or the built environment. As an intern, you will have the opportunity to work alongside industry-leading architects, designers, brand strategists, writers, and researchers.
