Being a Visual Design Intern

As a Visual Design Intern you’ll kick it with the rest of the visual design team doing visual designery things. But in all seriousness your team is responsible for making sure everything looks beautiful AND usable.

As an intern you’ll be designing the most gorgeous web apps, mobile apps. Did we mention websites and icons? Besides that you’ll help out the rest of the team with setting up design systems. If you’re interested, we actually wrote something on how we go about design systems at Yummygum.

You’ll spend your day picking up tasks in Linear, getting down and dirty in Figma. And of course meme’ing around on Slack. You’re in direct contact with our clients. This means finding the right words to say why you made such and such design decisions is key. Not just towards the client but also to the rest of the team.

Together we’ll pair your schools competences to make sure you excel in the thing you want to learn more about. At the end of your internship you'll be at least as good a visual designer you set out to be. But probably an even better one.

  • Growth spurt
  • Relaxed office hours
  • A nice monetary compensation

As an Visual Design Intern...

You know your way around in Figma like no other. Working with Components and Styles is something you’re very familiar with. You aware of how design decisions like a certain color or corner radius affects the look and feel of a design.

You’re intrigued by creating beautiful designs that look consistent and are still usable. You know how to put your design decisions into words and love getting inspired by team mates.

Working 8px Grids is something you’re comfortable with and you’ve heard about Atomic Design. Perhaps you’ve even fiddle’d around with applying in your own designs. You fully understand there are certain platform sizing and conventions and patterns. And you keep these in mind when you’re designing for iOS, Android or web.

Ideally you do a study that’s closely related to everything we mentioned above. Communication & Multimedia Design or Media College to name a few. You absolutely love designing and you have a portfolio that exists of more than just what was asked from you from your study.
