Intern Responsibilities: IIP interns will support either the graphic designer or the art director:
Graphic Design Assistant: This IIP intern will support the graphic designer. Graphic designers are responsible for creating design solutions that have a high visual impact. These designs are employed across a wide range of products and activities, including websites, advertising, books, magazines, posters, computer games, product packaging, exhibitions and displays, corporate communications and corporate identity, everything that makes up an organization's visual "brand." Graphic designers work to create a concept agreed upon by the client, creative director, or account manager. They develop creative ideas and concepts, choosing the appropriate media and style to meet the client's objectives. The work demands creative flair, up-to-date knowledge of industry software (Photoshop, Illustrator), and a professional approach to time, costs, and deadlines.
Art Director Assistant: This IIP intern will support the Art Director. Advertising art directors, often known as "creatives," produce innovative ideas for the visual elements of advertising campaigns in all kinds of media, including cinema and television, internet (digital/viral marketing), posters, press, and radio. An art director usually works alongside a copywriter to form a "creative team." Traditionally, the copywriter produces the words to go with the visuals created by the art director. These roles are now becoming more blurred and it is likely that both will have input into the visual and written content of the advertising campaign. The work demands creative flair, up-to-date knowledge of industry software (Photoshop, Illustrator), and a professional approach to time, costs, and deadlines.
Qualifications: IIP candidates with interests in media, technology, information systems, economics, marketing, or psychology are encouraged to apply. Basic Portuguese skills are required.
