You don’t have to be great to start...

Being an intern is not an easy job.

For a fresh design student, right out of college, an internship provides a stepping-stone towards professional practice and in solving real-world problems. It allows to apply design skills acquired in school to complex projects, collaborate with professionals and also gain insight on shaping their future career path. It also means that there is a lot to learn in a short amount of time and expectations are often high from both sides.

Saibal Datta, Founder & Design director at GDD(Gaia Digital Design) says, “We continuously give opportunities to fresh design graduates who are hoping to learn and grow. Interaction design, visual design, product thinking, user research and industrial design. These are the core areas where we focus when we try and mentor an intern at GDD. We just hope our interns realize that an employer invests a lot of time in training you to be ready for a working level position.”
