This July, we’re kicking off R/GA Futures — an 8 week internship with R/GA London that will see interns from different disciplines collaborate together to create their best work. R/GA is a place where everyone can thrive, regardless of their background or identity.
At R/GA, we design businesses and brands for a more human future. For Visual Design, this means we create concepts, brand identity, digital experiences, visual languages and design systems through a human centric approach.
As a Visual Design Intern, you’ll be working side-by-side with top tier industry talent, contributing to live client briefs while receiving mentorship, training, and exposure to work that pushes boundaries and sets new standards. We are looking for potential paired with fresh thinking and a love for design.

What should I send you?
1. Show us your eye for design. We don’t expect a professional portfolio from you (not yet), but we need you to show us your design-related skills. This could be anything: something you have designed, a personal project, or your Instagram profile. Send us a link and surprise us.
2. Show us how you think. In 2022, the world is a very complicated place. Often, we spend so much time thinking about the BIG things, that we forget the little things that make up our day-to-day lives. As a way for us to get to know you a little better, take a moment to think about one way you could improve the day-to-day lives of the people around you. With reference to technology (or not!). Your idea should fit in one slide, sent as a PDF file.
