Graphic Design Internship

Washington, DC
Are you an highly-driven student or recent graduate looking for an opportunity to get your feet wet in the agency world? Are you excited to and open to challenge the way you think about using design in the real world?

Illustria is looking for a Summer Intern to assist in the creation of transformative work for our clients, which we call “Members”. A fundamental principle in our philosophy is “Objectivity”. With this, we challenge our Members to listen to their customers and realize the underlying issues that are affecting their ability to be aligned or grow.

The ideal candidate must be open-minded and empathetic. A team player goes without saying, but it’s especially important to be self-starting and engaged. You will have a fair amount of direction but also autonomy and are expected to take advantage of it.

About this role

    • Embody Illustria’s vision, mission, and core values as a positive internal voice of the creative team and an external ambassador of Illustria
    • Create and own your work
    • Empathize with the Member to develop a clear understanding of their business objectives and the problem that they are looking to solve
    • Contribute original ideas and be an integral part of the initial creative process
    • Execute work with professional competence and have the ability to move seamlessly from one engagement to the next
    • Partner with Member Services to ensure that all deliverables are in line with Member strategy and expectations
    • Present internally and tell the story of the work in creative reviews by explaining how the piece meets the Member’s needs
    • Engage with formal critique from the Illustria team to improve the work, and give the same professional critique to your colleagues’ work as necessary
    • Adapt to stay innovative and remain a constant student in everything
    • A strong understanding of Adobe Creative Cloud and Sketch
    • A basic understanding HTML/CSS is a plus, but not necessary
