Design is kind of a big deal at VSA. But if you’ve made it this far, the chances are high that you already knew that. So now we can tell you we’re looking for a designer-designer** to bring brands alive, with that special mix of creative brainpower and Creative Suite knowhow. As our Designer Intern, you’ll be in the front seat of individual design projects, working with a team to develop concept and thematic elements. Expect anything from packaging to web to logos. Just don’t expect to be bored.
**What the heck are we talking about? We’re looking for two distinct types of designers for our internship program. This position calls for someone heavily invested in the elements of design and less so how these elements come together in say, an ad. Think typography over layout. (If you’re leaning toward the latter, please see our Creative Design Intern position.)
A little bit about the VSA Summer Internship Program: If you’re looking for another bullet point on your resume, look elsewhere. At VSA, like much of what we do, we take our internship program seriously. Which means our interns work on “real work,” with real meetings, deadlines, and business challenges from our brands and clients. This is the education you won’t get in a classroom. Consider it career practice, with the freedom to learn, make mistakes, refine, question and tag along. You’ll work with an individual mentor and supervisor in a unique cross-disciplinary environment focused on brand, communications, marketing and digital. As part of the larger program, you’ll take part in intern meetings, team outings, activities and initiatives (can you say networking?). And yes, it’s paid, with an hourly rate, for 40 hours/week, on-site. It starts June 4th. Bet you can’t wait for summer.
Note: this position is part of VSA’s Design Practice.
Working closely with a supervisor and a mentor, Design Interns will be responsible for:
