What will you be doing?
Visual Designers are responsible for the design and orchestration of visual elements in a systemic composition. The discipline combines design for interaction (UI/UX, design systems and digital products) and design for communication (brand, print, and visual storytelling). Visual designers balance spirit and rationality; brand and product; functional clarity and emotional impact.
As a Visual Design Intern, you will support teams on client-facing and internal projects. You will learn by doing, with guidance from experienced practitioners, who will help you understand and deliver the visual design activities assigned to you, in the context of interdisciplinary projects.
Project teams rely on Visual Designers to:
Translate brand principles, themes, and moods into strategic frameworks for visual expressions
Create scalable design language systems for typography, colour, components, and layouts
Craft user interfaces for digital consumer and enterprise products
Design brand identities and brand collateral
Build wayfinding and pictographical systems
Create multi-media narratives that tell engaging stories of a team, project, or deliverable, with the audience and communication objective in mind
On a typical project you will support activities including:
Evolve brand expression; by building on either existing direction, or creating one from scratch
Create expressions for mood, tone, look/feel to help clients position their product, brand, or service
Harmonise utilitarian needs of the user (accessibility, usability, navigation, key features) with more emotional values of design to create unique and distinguished brand equity for the client
Drive collaboration with marketing, brand, strategy, and editorial teams to align from the design purpose to the execution roadmap
Collaboratively create digital product concepts that push the bar for quality and excellence in a given field/industry
Craft a foundation for Design System, typography, iconography, colour, grid, and design components
Frame a vision for art direction, photography, and illustration to reinforce product/service vision
Craft brand identities and brand collateral
Support the team with guidance for visual expression
Create multi-media artefacts which tell the story of the work in an impactful way
We want you to have:
Recently completed, or will complete within 1 year, a university degree in Graphic Design, Visual Communications, or a related design or artistic discipline
