Paid Design Intern

New York, United States Full-time

About Us
Vector is an eclectic team of designers, developers and digital marketers. We don’t do things because they’re the trendy thing to do, we do them because we believe in them. They’re the right idea, for the right client, at the right time and we believe deeply in everything we do.

We share a desire for quality and innovation across all three of our core services and the ambition to exploit each other’s strengths to create something greater than our individual abilities. We’re constantly collaborating and learning from each other.

This desire is not top down. Everyone at Vector is passionate about their craft and we celebrate each other’s strengths to solve complex problems for our clients, partners, and each other.

About The Position
We look at our internship program as a place for us both to learn, grow and innovate. You’ll be as much a part of the team as anyone else and you’ll be encouraged to speak up on a daily basis, bringing your own point of view to our work and office environment.

You’ll find yourself helping us prep for a client workshop, iterating on a user experience problem, exploring a broad variety of options for an identity and much much more.

Most importantly we’re here to support you. You’ll be paired with a mentor to see you through your time at Vector, push you to create your best work and give you advice on how to advance your career.  Internships last for around 3-months and are paid (hey, you’re talented and you deserve to be paid for that!).

Experience
You should be a recent grad (or soon-to-be graduate) with a BA in Design (though you should feel free to apply if you’re still in school at any level and we’ll certainly consider your application and possibly meet to offer advice). You should be skilled in Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign, have the ability to express your ideas in a team environment and be ready for new challenges and experiences. Familiarity with prototyping tools or code and experience in video/motion are bonuses but not required.

Benefits

  • “Lunch on us” every day via your own Seamless account
  • Museum Visits and other regular out of the office quick field trips
  • Regular in-office meetups (with the team and other friends of Vector) with beer, wine and snacks
  • Vector Labs and Tech-101 sessions to further your design and technical skills

How to Apply
Please send a website showing your work and your resume (sure!) but what we really want to hear is why you’re passionate about working in design to the attention of Nick Spriggs.

Bonus: Tell us about a time that you met a designer who inspired you.
