Design Intern


Cognition Studio is a boutique agency positioned to offer design, interaction, and biocommunication expertise to leaders in life sciences, healthcare, and global health.

We’re seeking a talented design intern who is eager to hone their craft and design process. As an intern, you’ll do hands on work as an integrated member of the team alongside other designers, science storytelling illustrators and animators, and developers.

Our designers are expected to contribute across the broad spectrum of contexts, mediums, and processes for which we design with a high level of visual and intellectual craft. However, each member has particular strength(s) in brand, ux/interaction/product, and/or information design.

Articulating your interests and goals of what you’d like to achieve with your time with the studio is ideal.

Application requirements and instructions
To apply, submit your resume, cover letter, and portfolio. Your portfolio should demonstrate your specific role and contributions for each project. We’re always interested in the outcome of projects. But, when hiring our peers, we’re also particularly interested in hearing the process involved in developing the design.

We take internships based off of fit and not necessity. Our studio and the subject matter we deal with as a studio can be quite complex and dense. Due to the nature of our work, we’ve found students working towards a Master’s degree have been successful interns. However, we also consider students who are working towards or recently completed a Bachelor’s degree.

This internship will be for Summer 2019. Start and finish dates are flexible based off of the academic calendar.
