Role summary:

IDEO is looking for a Graphic Design Intern to work in our San Francisco studio.

Graphic Design Interns work collaboratively, creatively, and flexibly within interdisciplinary teams and with our clients. IDEO's human-centered design process involves careful observations of people, gathering insights from those observations and other creative perspectives, exploring and defining design opportunities, helping to define strategy, creating tangible design expressions, and communicating the essence of these ideas.

The ideal candidate has strong visualization and prototyping skills in addition to being comfortable working within multidisciplinary teams.

Being a designer at IDEO means you do a lot of listening, observing, brainstorming and iterating with a group of people with backgrounds very different than yours. This diversity of thought and approach results in breakthrough ideas that lead to innovative outcomes.

Candidates should demonstrate an ability to work across a range of mediums, from print to motion, from packaging to digital experiences and everything in-between. Prototyping and production skills are essential, as well as a passion for design and a point of view about your work.

This internship will last 3-6 months.

All intern candidates must:

  • be passionate about their craft/area of specialization
  • demonstrate a clear point-of-view relating to their design
  • play nicely with others (IDEO is a very team-oriented culture)
  • be self-directed toward excellent work outcomes
