ID Marketing Internship

Overview

On the surface, this may look like a graphic design internship, but far from it. We're looking for someone looking to apply the methodical thinking of an Industrial Designer, with a passion for articulating stories into words and visuals. Your time will be spent running a comb through our website, planning product launches and working on both photo and video shoots.

A Day at Well Made

Designing a product starts with an idea and maybe a prototype, but creating a valuable addition to any product line takes so much more. A typical work day in this position will have you peeling back the hood on our website, our listings, our Line Sheets – whatever will give you and us insight into how and why our customers are coming to us and why they are buying. What features are important, should we have detailed photographs or an installation video? 3,000 people visited the site this month, but only 50 made a purchase. How can we increase that to 60, 90, 150?

We are in the process of honing our website, messaging and communications. Working with the Well Made team would include marrying Industrial Design with User Experience, Information Architecture, Branding, Advertising – basically everything they never touched on in school.

The Details

  • 16 hours per week minimum commitment (20-24 hours preferred)

  • $10/hour paid every two weeks

  • Preferred commitment through end of calendar year

  • We can work with your school if credit is needed

  • Free street parking, public transit right outside (Diversey @ Pulaski)

  • Full shop access (once aptitude is proven)

The Fun Stuff

At Well Made, your success is our success. We'll work to make sure you have something solid for your resume and your portfolio. You will make something, period. We have an excellent wood shop, photo studio, laser engraver, 4x8 CNC – all can be at your disposal if you can prove to us you can handle it. Want to learn? Just say the word.
