Design Intern

Potion seeks a talented design intern to join our team for summer 2015. We are looking for an organized, motivated and detail-oriented person who enjoys working in a collaborative design environment with a tight-knit team. From day one you will be collaborating with fellow designers, developers and producers throughout a range of project phases, including in-depth research and concepting, design exploration, low-fidelity prototyping, through to the final stages of design production.


Design Interns are responsible for supporting the conceptual development, direction and delivery of visual design. The position requires a solid foundation in design & visual communications (branding, composition, typography, etc.) as well as the ability to translate design direction across multiple platforms and a wide range of media.
