Future Startup Design Internships
Design For Change
Design is the lens we use to see the world around us. And it makes a lot of difference. They say-only color dictates our decision about anything by a 70% of margin. Design can amplify importance of any message. As we aspire to bring social change and take over the media and commerce and art we are looking for few Graphic Design Interns to help us shape few things at FS and launch a new ambitious project.
As an intern you will be coming in and launching a new project-a big one that we have been thinking of-and will also be assisting us with our regular design works. You will be paid and you will get stock if the project works out at the end. So this is a pretty big deal for us!
Like all of us in the team, we expect you will work hard, sweat, think, think hard, love, fail, learn and make it happen at the end and every weekend, preferably on Thursday Team Meeting [TTM] you will celebrate your experience and your progress with us.
What is Future Startup
WE are a fast growing Media startup based in Dhaka, Bangladesh, our month to month growth is 30%+ and we want to take over few other areas like that of art and commerce. We experiment, we fail, we learn and we do it again. We are a small team but we are making difference everyday. And we believe in the works we are doing.
As a team we work hard, extremely passionate about the work we are doing and we inspire taking initiative and making difference. And yes, we are a distributed team as well which means we work remotely from many places!
The Work and The Process

You will be working with a mentor from FS team and collaborate with him/her throughout your time at FS.
