What: Who is ¿JOYCE? Intern Search

Who: Designers and Writers interested in a Creative Internship
When: Summer 2019
Why: The more ideas the merrier

If you can feel it deep down in your bones that you might just be JOYCE, we’d really like to meet you.

JOYCE is looking for a few creatives who want to learn from a small and independent creative workshop for a dream summer of slinging creative & working for a living.

Expect To:
Get to know your inner animal guides
Learn about experiential retail
Work with some cool brands and people
Get to the bottom of who is JOYCE

JOYCE is a small group of creatives in Mpls who share inspirations, creative processes, and life-learnings to make meaningful things that will cause people to feel a way. We are creative lead, we are a brand, and we aim to provide an alternative to the traditional agency model.

We’re looking for interesting people who are not afraid to share where you’ve been and what you demand from the future. All ideas for making advertising, marketing, experiential retail, screens, and brands better are welcome. Non-typical backgrounds encouraged, non-ad people a plus, non people-people potentially viable. A POV through a diverse and open lens of race and gender is ideal.

Interns should be conceptual and creative-focused. Curious about what might work and educated on what definitely has and will not. Please come with thoughtfulness, inquisitiveness, and be ready to share your point of view on how to best meet creative goals for our clients.

The JOYCE internship will have a flexible start and end day but will run from approximately Jun 1 – Sept 1, 2019. There is full-time opportunity for the right designers and writers upon internship completion. This internship will pay you money. The internship will focus on creating and documenting culture, forecasting trends, and designing ways for our clients to connect with their customers on a deeper and more meaningful level. We will make some cool work together and we will definitely have fun.

Remember JOYCE is small, so you will likely wear multiple wigs, but a particular passion, focus, and technical skill set could look something like this:

Copy Interns: Should understand how to write in a way that will make real live humans smile or feel something. Should also know how to talk about ideas to designers and clients. Storyboarding, art direction a plus. Please love naming, brand storytelling and writing web copy. Do you like the internet, e-commerce, apps and in-store merchandising & signage and want to write for them? Great.

Design: Possess a strong POV and the ability to make design trends not follow them. Know how to design for screens. All of them. Or be excited to learn how at least. Bring your ability to articulate a creative vision and your stamina to execute it through to the very last production detail. Do you know what a UX and a UI is? SVG float your boat? Hop in.
