Design Intern Spring/Summer 2018
Role: Production Designer for Audience Engagement Department
What you’ll do: Once our videos are made, there’s still a lot to do to get the word out to our audience. Production projects range from creating promotional posts for social media, mocking up a new page on our website, and formatting the TBP Quarterly –– our print publication for supporters. As a production designer, you’ll be tasked with creating new print and digital media that fits within our existing brand.
Who you’ll work with: You’ll be a part of the Audience Engagement team, and Matthew — our Brand Designer — will be guiding you as you work on your projects. He will be your guy for feedback on your work, tips on designing within the constraints of brand guidelines, and endless podcast recommendations.
Why it’ll be awesome: In addition to real-world experience working within an established brand, this internship will push you to engage with the bigger conversations in the design industry. Plus, there’s always something happening around here (we take birthdays very seriously).
