About the role ROOM is a fast-paced startup looking to disrupt the existing industry by producing new digital and physical products and services that rethink tomorrow’s workspace. Our design team is on the hunt for a talented Graphic Design Intern to help translate our mission into inspiring and innovative design.
Here at ROOM, design is part of our DNA. We’re building a brand-new in-house creative studio that will support—and partner with, our Brand and Growth marketing teams. The Graphic Design Intern needs to be well-rounded and comfortable executing design projects across a range of media: web, email, display and social channels, brand presentations, and maybe even the odd GIF.
Graphic design experience with an agency, startup or tech/CPG brand is a plus (including illustrations, icons). General understanding of web design, whether it’s intuitive UI, responsive design, interactivity, accessibility, or conversion rate optimization, is preferred.
This role reports to our Junior Digital Designer and is a paid intership working out of the office in New York (Soho)
What you’ll do
Design graphic assets for campaigns, product launches, and enhancements to ROOM’s website
Create engaging illustrations and icons for use across website, social media, email, and more
Execute day-to-date editorial projects like white papers, spec books and user manuals, for both print and digital
Own social media posts, icons, illustrations, and decks for marketing and sales teams
Work closely with ROOM’s Junior Digital Designer and Project Manager, part of the Brand Marketing Team, to deliver on business and creative goals.
Who you are
Enjoy working in a dynamic, fast-paced environment.
Strong empathy for the end user.
Highly organized and detail-oriented.
Experience with Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator
Experience with Sketch
Experience with Zeplin or Figma (or similar)
Highly collaborative and easy to work with. Comfortable with (but not always obedient to) design critiques. You use stakeholder feedback to improve, but also defend your ideas when necessary.
Flexible: You can quickly switch contexts and meet tight deadlines without losing fidelity.
