Why I Shop Downtown

This is our third year running this program, and it’s been a wildly fun, win-win-win situation. Interns have a great opportunity for some real-world experience and to have their names on a real-world project, a great non-profit receives a professional-caliber project without the cost, and we get to meet and learn from the next generation of design professionals.

Last summer our intern team worked with Fairleaf, a national non-profit selling moringa products to promote nutrition and reforestation in Nicaragua. The team worked with the clients to develop a strong brand, brand guide, marketing strategy, new ecommerce website, and redesigned packaging. In 2013, our interns worked with local non-profit Ithaca Community Harvest to produce a versatile visual identity system and responsive website, strengthening their own professional experience while supporting healthy food opportunities in our community.
