Our Experience Design apprentices are junior designers eager to master the fundamentals of their practice area. The apprentice program builds onto a undergraduate course load or design bootcamp, taking theoretics and applying them to real-life design work. The Apprentice program equips qualified individuals with the skills they need to join client engagements as productive designers. During this 12-week training program, apprentices will work alongside our team participating in existing client projects. In addition, the apprentice class will participate in a capstone project, demonstrating the breadth of knowledge he or she has learned over the course of the program.
