Design Intern

Posted on 28/12/20

Work closely with professionals of every kind to design products.

Available Internship Period:

October 2021 – December 2021

January 2022 – December 2022

To Apply:

Please send the following materials to [email protected] (Evelyn Goh) with the title Application to Project Manager Position.

  1. Your most recent resumé/CV
  2. A copy of your portfolio, which should contain some sample code of any project you’ve written, with a brief explanation of said project.

At ADI, you’ll design and create a broad variety of items, ranging from everyday products (such as mobile phones, household appliances, or toys) to large-scale projects (such as industrial tools, equipment and machinery). You won’t simply be improving or make adjustments on existing products in terms of functionality or visual appeal – you’ll be assisting in creating entirely new products to be manufactured.

Work closely with engineers, model-makers, and sales, along with other skilled professionals, to create final deliverables for our clients. Learn from the best designers, prototypers, and visualisers to bring your concepts to life; arm yourself with the skills you’ll need to succeed as a designer, and learn that even innovation has traditions that can be broken.
