Video and Motion Graphics Internship -- Starts May 2017
The Digitability Video and Motion Graphics Program is a unique opportunity to designed to give you a chance to work hands-on, with a dedicated and mission-driven organization. We’re looking for a summer intern to join us in delivering a service that will improve the lives of people with disabilities.
What you'll learn:
Working side by side with the Head of Creative Strategy, you’ll get hands-on experience in all aspects of the creative process. While many design program focused on physical disability, designing for people with cognitive disabilities like autism is a unique field and requires a special approach. Digitability’s one-of-a-kind application is the only program that provides such specialized training in the country; thus, providing a scalable solution to a large and growing problem.
Completing the Digitability Video and Motion Graphics Internship Program will develop your ability to think about design with an explicit and synthesized approach. You will gain unique insight into the nuanced cognitive and behavioral variations that people with disabilities often have and how to design with this population in mind.
Through trainings, assigned projects, and working with the Design, Sales, and Marketing departments, you will learn how to target specific audiences by design choices, and a whole bunch of other jargon to throw at your professors and classmates in September.
Who we are looking for:
Are you a college creative who is looking to flex your design muscles this summer? Are you interested in working on mission-driven projects in trendy co-working spaces? Are you detail oriented with highly-efficient organizational skills? If so, we want to work with you!
