These last from between 8 to 12 weeks and we take on a single intern at a time. The internships are very structured and you will be introduced to studio life, be offered opportunities for specific training or professional experience and work alongside the ISO team on Live Projects and our research work. We look for talented, motivated individuals across communication design, motion graphics and animation, film-making, games and interaction design, creative technologies, writing, research, and digital communications.

    The next space will run between June and August and we will be accepting applicants from 01 May 2020 – 31 May 2020
