Art & Design Internships

It is said that art is unquestionably one of the purest and highest elements of human happiness. It trains the mind through the eye and the eye through the mind. As the sun colors flowers, so does art color life.

The design industry is a beautiful, vibrant and dynamic creative sector that plays an essential role in the allure of the world around us. Every day, designers conceive ideas from the depths of their imagination, bringing them into our 3D existence and reality. Designers help conceive and shape new products, influence how homes are built and offices are optimized, optimize digital devices, and translate the world into a way humans can understand and appreciate.

However, the reality of the design world for any designer is that the competition is intense, with more fresh graduates than there are jobs ready to be filled. This means that not only do graduates have to be talented and qualified but having experience in the industry gives them an unfair advantage in the saturated talent pool.

At NEXSTEP, we help you build your professional portfolio to maximize the chances of securing a job effortlessly in the future.

During the design internships that NEXSTEP has helped facilitate for students worldwide; some of the day-to-day tasks they have participated in include:

  • Designing the UX and UI of a new iOS application;
  • Working on creating a brand identity for a hotel chain, creating logos, visuals, colors, and patterns.
