Internship details

Help to promote the invaluable work of NGOs in Croatia by creating websites, designing marketing materials and editing videos and photos. These design internships are suited to creative interns with graphic design and IT skills, wanting to gain real-world experience in digital marketing, website development or editing. Boost your creative portfolio and make a difference to underprivileged communities in Split.

This is a remote internship you can conduct virtually from home.

Website & Graphic Design interns in Croatia are hosted remotely by NGOs that support various underprivileged communities, such as the elderly, immigrants, disabled individuals, and women from disadvantaged backgrounds. These NGOs have limited funding for website development and marketing. Virtual design interns help these valuable organizations to advance their missions, by improving public relations, contributing to marketing, and enhancing the fundraising initiatives that support the NGO’s endeavors.

Interns are matched with NGOs which have experiential learning opportunities available, within the field of graphic and web design. The exact nature of your internship and the activities you’ll be doing depend on your current level of experience and skills. You will discuss your specific areas of interest and the needs of your placement NGO with your supervisor and design the scope of your role. Some of the typical projects that virtual interns can become involved with include:

Website design

Interns with experience in HTML, JavaScript or CSS can help to build or update the websites of NGOs so that they can better share their mission and engage wider audiences. You can help to improve website content, upgrade features or improve user experience. Remote interns should also help to train and support the autonomy of local staff, so that they can effectively manage and independently update their own website and social media platforms.

Production of marketing materials

Creative interns with a good understanding of marketing, branding or graphic design can play an important role in developing and improving marketing materials that enable the NGOs to engage wider audiences. You’ll help to design and develop campaign materials, posters, banners, flyers and other print material.

Video editing and photography

Many NGOs in Croatia do not have quality photos or videos, that can make a huge difference in widening their message in the community. By helping to edit and produce various videos and photos for websites, social media and other marketing materials, interns help NGOs to gain the attention of larger audiences and communicate important messages or educational material.

As a design intern working remotely, you’ll need to exhibit strong self-management, be proactive in identifying areas of improvement, and creative in executing new ideas. You’ll be in regular contact with your supervisor via online meetings to exchange feedback, discuss ideas, gain cultural insight, and receive guidance and updates on your internship role.
