Design intern

About the role

We are passionate about supporting the future of the creative industry and are looking for a bright, innovative and ambitious design intern to join us for 1–3 months this summer.

At Luminous, we believe in shining new light on creative careers by illuminating possibilities. As strategic storytellers, our expertise lies in helping businesses to inspire others with who they are, what they do and why it matters. Our internship scheme is a great opportunity for you to gain real-world experience in a creative and supportive studio.

As an intern you will have an assigned mentor throughout the scheme who will ensure you get the most out of the experience. Working on live client projects across several disciplines, you’ll get the opportunity to learn not just from our design team but from people around our business, to give you that full agency experience.

Our internships are paid pro rata based on the London Living Wage. This is a hybrid role, working at least three days a week from our Farringdon office.

Your experience

A degree Is not essential, but an ideas-based portfolio is. We’re not expecting to see fully realised client work, but a showcase of what excites you about design – whether that’s university or competition briefs or self-initiated projects. We’re keen to hear from passionate designers who have a willingness to engage, learn and experiment.

  • Create positive impact – Visualise unique, creative ideas through moodboards and design concepts and present these internally.
  • Lead with insight – Demonstrate curiosity and a passion for design culture, and share current trends with the design team.
  • Build teams, remove barriers – Be an integral part of the team and take part in all aspects of studio life.
  • Be kind – Support other members of the design team with their projects.
