Graphic Design Intern

PROJECT DESCRIPTION:

Mercy Corps is a leading global organization powered by the belief that a better world is possible. In disaster, in hardship, in more than 40 countries around the world, we partner to put bold solutions into action — helping people triumph over adversity and build stronger communities from within.

The Brand Marketing team, comprised of the Creative, Content Strategy and our Digital Optimization teams, is focused on raising our profile and making sure that our most important audiences – program partners and participants, government and corporate funders, private donors – know the value we bring to the world and want to work with us.

The Mercy Corps Creative Team is seeking a Junior Designer Intern to assist in updating our signature agency materials, participate in ideation and team meetings for ongoing projects, and assist designers in developing new materials.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

The Creative Team is Mercy Corps’ internal brand and marketing agency. We function much like an integrated marketing firm–leading and developing the design, content and messaging for our channels (website, social), advertising and the organization as a whole. During this internship, the Junior Designer will:

Work independently on projects with oversight from Senior Designers and the Art Director
Gain an understanding of design processes and work flow in an agency-like setting
Collaborate on projects with our internal Creative Team: designers, content planners, video editors, writers, social media managers, as well as internal stakeholders (clients) and external vendors
Develop proper file building, structure, and organization techniques
Receive critique, feedback and review of their concepts, ideas and design work
Be exposed to ideation techniques to generate concepts
Be exposed to modern humanitarian emergency and resiliency efforts and explore how design and messaging can make causes accessible, attractive and engaging to different audiences
