We’re Hiring: Summer Internship

Description

A 3-month internship starting in May/June 2014 thru August 2014 that provides the opportunity to learn, to experience design in a professional setting, and to contribute in both creative and administrative roles. On the creative side, the intern will be asked to work with members of our creative team to assist in the development and execution of creative, effective and original solutions to design projects on behalf of Alliant’s clients.

Alliant Studios’ 3-month internship program is a great opportunity for designers just beginning their career to add quality work to their portfolio while gaining experience with creative brainstorming, client relations, time management, deadlines and the overall design process. The intern will also be responsible for assisting team members in a variety of administrative and office support roles—roles that may change from day to day.
