Branded Design Intern



New York, NY, USA
Posted on Wednesday, May 3, 2023
BDG is seeking a Branded Design Intern to assist the Art Directors and Designers on the BDG Studios team. BDG Studios is a full-service creative agency that leverages the BDG editorial vision, audience, and scale to create 360-degree content programs for brand partners.
As an intern, you'll get a peek at the ins and outs of branded content in verticals like fashion, wellness, beauty, entertainment, automotive, food, and more. You should be ready to help with a wide variety of tasks, whether you're assisting a designer with article and social layouts, designing collages, resizing sourcing images, or maintaining the creative roster. Additionally, you should have an interest in social media and be ready to lend your opinion on what’s currently trending across platforms. In your cover letter, please tell us about a recent piece of branded content you’ve seen and liked, and why it resonated with you. (Ex: Do you love the imagery? The styling? The tone of voice? What makes it unique? Why does it work for its environment, whether you saw it on Instagram, TikTok, or on an O&O website?)
Additionally, please provide your portfolio or website for review. BDG’s 2023 Internship Program is an exciting opportunity to get hands-on experience at one of the fastest growing digital media companies today. Our immersive program gives each intern the chance to explore and develop their interests through executive mentorship, career training, professional development seminars and workshops, collaborative projects, off-site events, photoshoots and more.
This is a paid, part-time opportunity beginning June 12, 2023 and runs through September 8, 2023. Candidates should be available to work up to 28 hours per week, and will be given the choice to work either remotely or from BDG’s New York City HQ office near Madison Square Park, depending on your role.
