Role: Design Intern
Supervisor: Art Director
Who we are:
Because you voraciously follow what’s happening in art and design through several channels, you can pull compelling design ideas for Concept Phases of work at HUSH at our scale of work. You can quickly make lots of 2D and 3D sketches that bring concepts and ideas to life to test collaboratively with designers, strategists and technologists. You speak with clarity and conviction about design choices and your process. Your portfolio shows an understanding of timeless design and current trends. It shows a track record of rigor in design, love and attention to detail and iteration – form, shape, graphic hierarchy, structure, balance and framing across many media – e.g. print, mobile, web, as prompts for generative work, UX/UI, in physical space [large scale] and non-traditional spaces. You produce design work that a majority of folks find polished, arresting, visceral, innovative – going beyond typical and generic design solutions without clutter and extraneous detailing.
You demonstrate curiosity in the way you actively listen, learn, and collaborate with the rest of your team during various stages of a project. A Design Intern at HUSH participates in many stages of production from concepting, design development and production/QA and the fast iterations sometimes needed in deploying projects. You will need to be communicative, as you will learn to interact with many members of the team, across disciplines. You will lean on your demonstrated ability to articulate your vision and effectively receive feedback. Naturally, your portfolio of work shows solid design across several media beyond print.
You will research, collect, and distill ideas into usable references & guidelines for the design team. You will help to develop creative and strategic briefs, participate in workshop sessions to help teams solve complex design challenges. You will collaborate with internal teams and help the design process on many types of projects.
We conduct monthly meetings to review progress across your core responsibilities, professional and personal goals. We align each intern with a mentor who will help refine your goals, how you approach them, monitor progress, and help your internship be most beneficial.
