Apply today for the opportunity to work (for free!) with our summer intern team to strengthen your brand.
We’re seeking one innovative non-profit making a positive impact in our community. Apply today for the opportunity to work (for free!) with our summer intern team to refine, rework, or design your organization’s brand and marketing materials (website, print materials, business cards, packaging… )
This is our third year running this program, and it’s been a wildly fun, win-win-win situation. Interns have a great opportunity for some real-world experience and to have their names on a real-world project, a great non-profit receives a professional-caliber project without the cost, and we get to meet and learn from the next generation of design professionals.
Last summer, our star intern team worked with Fairleaf, a national non-profit selling moringa products to promote nutrition and reforestation in Nicaragua. The team worked with the clients to develop a strong brand, brand guide, marketing strategy, new e-commerce website, and redesigned packaging. In 2013, our stellar interns worked with local non-profit Ithaca Community Harvest to produce a versatile visual identity system and responsive website, strengthening their own professional experience while supporting healthy food opportunities in our community.
This summer, we’re selecting a team of interns from a very impressive pool of applicants and are guiding them through our process. The team will lead the client through Brand Articulation, identifying target audiences, communication goals, risks, and aspirations.
Once our team thoroughly understands the client’s goals and challenges, we’ll all work together to identify the best opportunity for production that is the right match for your organization and for our team’s talents. Maybe it’s a new, beautiful logo and visual identity system. Or a comprehensive brand guide. Maybe its an engaging, responsive website. Or a combination of all of the above. Whatever comes out of the project, it will be innovative, effective, and extend the reach of your organization’s communication strategy, building and strengthening bonds with your target audience.
This year, we’re looking for a non-profit who understands the value of a holistic solution. We have an innate ability learn about our clients, see where their communications and visual presentation are lacking, and fix it, and we’re passionate about sharing this process and guiding our interns to provide the same value.
Deadline: Send us your idea(s) by May 15, 2015. We will select a winning project by May 25, to be completed by August 15.
