Then we want to hear from you!
Zakkia is a Sydney based homewares brand, and now in our third year of running we are looking for an aspiring homewares designer to come onboard as our new design intern. We are in an exciting period of growth and development and this internship will offer diversity and a lot of opportunity to learn and grow in a fast paced small design studio. As our design intern you will work closely with our designer and buyer, and gain insight into all the different areas of designing for a small homewares brand.
In this internship you will:
- Work closely with our designer to interpret design briefs and assist in designing homeware products that meet the brief
- Create technical drawings and product specification sheets for handover to our production partners
- Be involved in collection planning and brainstorming meetings
- Partake in the whole creative process
- Partake in catalogue photo shoots
This is a 12 week unpaid internship with potential to turn into employment for the right candidate. Ideally it is a 2 day/week role, but we’re flexible and can work around your schedule!
We think that you are a product design student or graduate looking for an opportunity to learn and gain real-life experience. You are super creative, with a positive attitude and desire to learn! You are comfortable in a small creative team environment where things change on a daily basis.
You are a whiz at technical drawing and have an eye for details.
