Illustria is revolutionizing the design industry by bringing businesses a direct line to design, on demand, through a flexible subscription model. Our in-house team of designers transforms the design process for member companies like Bittorrent, One Medical Group, Mrs Fields Cookies, and WWE, and updates projects live over the cloud. We’re hitting a major growth phase two years in, employee-owned, cash-flow positive every month since our inception, and we want you to join our team.

Design Intern

Paid/ Internship/ Summer

Illustria is a startup that is pioneering a subscription, membership-based model for design. We believe that the Mad Men-style ad firm belongs in the ’60s, and today’s design should be accessible, convenient, and beautiful. Our flexible subscription model coupled with cloud technology delivers contemporary, clean design. This unique approach allows us to design across all fields, from education to technology, hospitality to healthcare. We have our finger on the pulse and are excited to create cutting-edge design for the future.

We are growing rapidly and are looking for talented designers to join our amazing team. Do you have an entrepreneurial spirit and find yourself asking “How can I make this better?” and “What does this lead to?” Do you believe that hard work makes for satisfying work? Do you like to collaborate and work on a variety of different kinds of projects? If so, we would love to talk with you about a place within our team!

Interns will have the opportunity to refine their design skills, as well as learn how to succeed in a design studio setting. This position works hand-in-hand with our fast-paced, collaborative team of designers. Interns will be mentored by an Art Director and will receive practical, hands-on training in creative and production projects.

(Note: Summer 2016 Internships are for students returning to their universities in Fall 2016 and graduating in ’17 or later. Summer Apprenticeships are for current seniors (prospective graduates in the Class of ’16) looking to start their careers with Illustria.)
