YOU see possibilities and think outside the box, you are creative and not scared to take initiative. You’re good at working in a (multidisciplinary) team, but you can also work independently. You are eager and curious about development and innovation. You are hands on and interested in design thinking, service design and strategy. You are fluent in English (writing and speaking) and have a sense for aesthetics. You know your way with Adobe Creative Suite and Microsoft Office.
WE bring strategic creativity to companies and organizations that want to innovate or renew themselves. We are looking for interns who are triggered by design thinking, service design, innovation or business analyses and how best to apply these in projects. You will actively take part in our projects and the development of our organisation.
WHAT WILL YOU BE DOING? Tasks and responsibilities can be as follows: substantive and supporting activities in projects (research, graphic design, preparing meetings, reporting), PR for DIG, maintaining the website, supporting in desk research and – last but not least, together with your fellow interns – taking care of the highly necessary coffee and groceries. The tasks and responsibilities you will actually get will depend on the projects we have at that moment and on your personal development during the internship.
REQUIREMENTS? The most important thing for us is that you are open and eager to learn. It is not necessary for you to have an education background (HBO/WO level) in the direction of design, however we would prefer non-graduates! We have had students coming from different fields such as, architecture, graphic design, industrial design, history, journalism, sociology, chemistry, fashion management and communication.
PERIOD? Starting as soon as possible, or at the latest, September 2016 – for a minimum of 5 months.
INTERESTED? Please send us an email with a portfolio and/or attachment of something you are very proud of to: firstname.lastname@example.org, and let us know what you want to learn and what you think you can contribute to DIG.
