We invented branding, and we’ve been reinventing it ever since. In 1964, our founder Walter Landor did something no one expected: He moved Landor’s headquarters onto a ferryboat named the Klamath, which he’d purchased at auction and docked in the San Francisco Bay. It was a bold choice—and a symbol of innovative thinking. The Klamath quickly became renowned for the groundbreaking creative work coming out of its studios and the myriad cultural luminaries who loved to visit: Andy Warhol, Tom Wolfe, Issey Miyake, Marshall McLuhan, and many others.

Walter’s legacy is still with us today. As long-established brands find themselves under siege from nimble, digitally savvy competitors, conventional approaches to branding no longer work. So we’ve revolutionized our practices to help clients build agile brands that seize opportunities—and thrive on change.

    Application

    I applied through other source. The process took 4 days. I interviewed at Landor (New York, NY) in May 2012.

    Interview

    I contacted the design director directly through a connection. HR then scheduled a first interview, in person with said design director, that included a portfolio review. I was then scheduled for a second interview with a larger team, again talking about the role and reviewing my portfolio. At the end of that second interview, I was offered the internship.
