Internship: Industrial Product Design

LEFF Amsterdam is on the lookout for the best industrial designer to support its creative team. It concerns an all-round internship for a period of 5 months. During this period you’ll be part of our creative department and will be involved in everything that has to do with product design. An ultimate experience that will serve as a foundation for your future as a designer.

Who are we?
LEFF amsterdam is a design brand, founded in 2011, and is sold in over 30 countries worldwide. The products in our collection show a focus on design and concept, strengthened by their functionality and quality. We collaborate with renowned designers from all over the world to create unique products. For every project we have the ambition to create a design classic.

The internship
During the internship the focus is on product design, product development, and brand building. Besides this, you will also work on developing the context of a product (like packaging design etc.). You will have the opportunity to work on projects of famous designers like Piet Hein Eek and Richard Hutten and therefore contribute a little bit to the design history.
Of course there will be space for your own creative input and the chance to make yourself count within our team. There is room to make mistakes, at the end of the day, this is the only way to learn. During this period, we will offer you good guidance and a financial compensation.
Period: beginning of February till the end of June 2018. (other periods can be discussed)

Ambitious, motivated, adaptable and independent individuals, with a high tolerance for stress. Your sense of detail and overview must be in balance, just as your creativity and engineering skills. And of course you have a great passion for design and technology. Literacy of software like Solidworks, Indesign, Illustrator and photoshop are a must, as we use these on a daily basis. Knowledge of webdesign, wordpress and photography is highly appreciated.
Furthermore, your English should be good both in verbal and written communication. Any other language you speak, is highly appreciated.
