Created for Change: 2022 Paid Design Internship

Gallardo Labs
Oct 27 · 5 min read

What began as a passion project has evolved into so much more. In 2020, our team launched its first Created for Change initiative, Practice Safe Voting, helping thousands of Americans cast their votes by mail in the middle of the Pandemic. After we helped more than 5,000 voters request their ballots and 600,000 impressions were made on social media, we could confidently say we used the power of design to create change. And we wanted to do more.

As we sought out our next global cause to dive into, we began thinking even bigger. We not only wanted to attack issues at large, but we also wanted to help the design industry on an individual level. We began seeking to create more representation in the world of design by generating opportunities for communities that are often overlooked. Committed to being better humans, our team plans to challenge the “default” and design a more inclusive tomorrow for all of us using our collective talent, time, and creative superpowers.

Today, we are proud to announce the Gallardo Labs 2022 Paid Design Internship Program, Created for Change. During the 2-month summer program, interns will be mentored by and work alongside some of the industry’s MVPs, using their creative superpowers for good. Together, we will use design to create meaningful change towards an important cause, creating a digital campaign idea, and then bringing it to life in various ways (website, social media, street art, etc.)

Application deadline is February 25, 2022.

About the Role

Pay: $6,000 ($25/hr)

As a Created for Change summer intern, you will be an integral part of a lean, highly-skilled team tasked with using our creative superpowers for good. You are a creative problem solver who is just as skilled in communication and collaboration as you are in fundamental design.

There are no egos here. You are self-motivated, passionate, and reliable. Team synergy, culture, and respect are core to our DNA.

What you’ll do

  • Collaborate closely with the UX and design team to craft a campaign concept, defining the main message, tactics, launch plan, and goals.
  • Create high-quality design deliverables including concepts, sketches, visual design comps, style guides, clickable prototypes, social media posts, emails, etc.
  • Help execute the campaign according to the plan; working with development to build the main digital experience (whether it be an app, website, etc), posting announcements on social media, helping spread the word, driving awareness to the experience created.

A Bit about you

What you bring to the table

  • You are intellectually curious, empathetic and have a user-centric research-driven mindset for design and discovery, and are not afraid to use it.
  • You have excellent taste and design aesthetic with strong attention to detail and pixel-perfect output.
  • You are collaborative and team-oriented, ready to roll up your sleeves and help however you can (no task is too big or too small); but are also comfortable working independently with limited supervision.
  • You thrive in a fast-paced, entrepreneurial remote work environment and are comfortable using technology (Slack, Google Drive, Zoom, etc.) to communicate with team members as needed.
  • You have knowledge of responsive web and native mobile technology (iOS, Android) for phones and tablets.
  • You are resourceful, dedicated, and highly accountable, able to prioritize and complete tasks as they come; and can communicate effectively with project managers and other designers as needed.
  • And you are comfortable with using Figma.
