Design Intern

You are curious and quirky. You see things that ordinary people don’t. You see things with a sense of humor and creativity, a flair of ingenuity and delight. You believe in the power of great storytelling. You are obsessed with your craft.

A Design Internship is an opportunity for new designers to practice their craft on actual client work—helping some of the most influential brands and companies achieve great outcomes. Be prepared to roll up your sleeves and start thinking, prototyping, collaborating, designing, and making worthwhile mistakes as part of your journey and Velo’s way of working. We have a three-month intern program, during which you will work with our strategy and design teams. You will be expected to contribute insights and ideas that challenge how we think and view our clients from alternate perspectives.
