YD JOB ALERT: Ammunition Group is looking for an Industrial Design Intern

ammunition_group_job_layout

Ammunition Group was founded by Robert Brunner in 2007, after having led the design team as Director of Industrial Design at Apple (he was succeeded by Jonathan Ive), and having been a partner at design powerhouse Pentagram for nearly a decade. Ammunition’s reputation precedes it as the company went on to create some of the most memorable products we’ve seen and loved today, from Ember’s self-heating coffee mug, to Lyft’s reinvented taxi light, to probably their magnum opus, the Beats by Dre brand and line of products. Having secured multiple awards in the 11 years since it was founded by Brunner, and Matt Rolandson, Ammunition works across these disciplines to transform great ideas into satisfying, personal experiences, and absolutely delightful and iconic products that are the hallmark of great industrial design.

THE OPPORTUNITY

Ammunition is an international design group providing services in product design, brand strategy and identity, UX design, graphic design, and packaging. While Ammunition’s strengths are diverse across design disciplines, our real expertise is to redefine markets by using design to create new business territory, and to communicate and connect with customers.

Interns are fully embedded into the ID team and contribute to every step of the industrial design process, from concept generation through final implementation.

• Effective, articulate design communication and decision-making skills

• Coordinate with vendors to help define and spec materials and processes used in fabrication and assembly

• Report to the VP, Industrial Design Studio

REQUIREMENTS
