What to expect from graphic and web design internships in South Africa

Further to learning about Cape Town and being able to explore and discover this spectacular city as a resident – not a tourist – you’ll benefit in other ways.

  • Gaining insight into a geographically unique industry – Here at the southern tip of Africa, we have distinctly different influences from the rest of the world. Our digital design work draws on our local flavor and the pool of creativity that is endemic to Cape Town. As an intern, you’ll be able to learn from the collective as you influence it.
  • Developing useful skills – At VACorps, we don’t want to place you in a position where you’ll just be making coffee. The agencies that offer internships tend to put you to work right away. When you’re immersed in a project, you’ll have ample opportunity to use and enhance your competencies. From utilizing software to running tasks for project management, this experience will be invaluable for your resume.

Being part of a creative team affords you many chances to learn and grow as a digital creative. Contact us today for more information about applying for a graphic or web design internship in Cape Town.
