About the Internship

We are looking for an Experiential Design Intern to join our creative team for 10 weeks this summer (June 4th to August 9th). This is a unique opportunity for junior design talent to support our ambitious experiential projects. Please note: this is a 3D design position, not a graphic design position. See requirements below.

This internship will provide insights into hands-on 3D design work and conceptual visual storytelling that ensures experiential projects meet design and creative standards across the agency.  Working closely with the team on projects from conceptualization through to final execution and installation, you will learn about visual representation and storytelling in the pitch phase, spatial design including floor plans, architectural visualizations and renderings, furniture & decor selections, technical specifications for print/build, and maintaining partnerships with fabricators and specialty vendors. 

As a Giant Spoon intern, you will be welcome to join any town halls, weekly updates, vendor presentations, lunches and happy hours during the summer. As part of the program, we will also be offering a series of workshops and Q&As with craft leads to gain insights into the day to day of neighboring departments.

This team is based in the New York office and works in a hybrid fashion with in-office work on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. We are looking for candidates who can join us in NYC!
