Fort Wayne, Indiana

Inside Design Collaborative, you’ll find a fun work environment, a team that strives to help each other grow, and long-lasting professional relationships. If that sounds like the internship opportunity you’ve been looking for, we’d like to talk to you about the possibility of joining our team.

As an intern at DC, you’ll be exposed to all aspects of the design process. Whether we’re meeting with clients or working closely with architects, engineers, or interior designers, we treat our interns as an integral part of the design team. We challenge them to take on as much as they are comfortable with and provide them with the support necessary for growth and learning.

At DC, our mission is to improve people’s worlds — in everything we do. That includes not only our clients but our employees. We want our employees to push boundaries, be creative thinkers, and challenge assumptions to meet the needs of our clients better and grow our portfolio. We believe our work makes a difference in our clients’ lives, and we pride ourselves on collaborating and involving them in the design process. We are searching for talented individuals motivated to rise to the challenge.



Design Collaborative’s Environmental Graphic Design Intern inspires, informs, and captivates clients, our communities, and our DC team. Promotional collateral, social media graphics, environmental graphics, wayfinding, and brand definition are just a few of the ways this role improves people’s worlds through the art of visual communication.
