Summer 2023 Internship – Illustration & Design

MullenLowe internships are designed to provide interns with agency experience as if you were a junior full-time hire.  In short, all interns across disciplines will be integrated into teams working on live briefs and client work. All interns will have the benefit of being matched with a manager and buddy to shadow and learn on the go.  A weekly seminar series offering a robust overview of how an agency runs is another unique opportunity to learn and ask questions.  We encourage each intern to take full advantage of events and programming that coincide with your time at the agency to get a feel for our culture and network with our teams.  It is our job to provide the best environment for you to learn and yours to maximize and make the most out of this advantage.  Start your career journey with us by reviewing the job description below and applying!

Come join the Creative Department, which is the heart of the agency because it’s where the work is made, and ideas turn into something that live in our world and part of culture. As an Illustration & Design Intern, you’ll be paired with a Senior Designer at the agency with the opportunity to work on real client briefs and can hopefully add something to your book by the end of the internship.  Candidates must have an online portfolio of their work to be considered for the opportunity.
