We’re looking for a design intern – Spring/Summer 2021


3 February 2021


CHART 2021

Are you passionate about art and communication? Do you want to work on the Nordic region’s leading cultural event and engage a wide international audience with contemporary art? CHART is looking for a design intern, starting in Spring, and we hope to hear from you!

The planning of CHART 2021 is in full swing! We are therefore looking for creatives with a strong background in visual design to realise our sky-high ambitions to open access and engage local and international audiences with contemporary art across physical and digital platforms.

Located at Kunsthal Charlottenborg, you will work as a part of a small, dedicated team to create high-quality content in a supportive, social environment. We offer you a comprehensive internship which will allow you to translate your most weird and wonderful ideas into concrete projects while expanding and strengthening your professional network across the arts and communication industry. The working language is both Danish and English.

We are looking for creatives with strong visual and graphic design skills, who can assist with ensuring our visual identity is powerful, accessible and recognisable across both digital and physical platforms. You are a super-user in Indesign and Photoshop, with an eye for high-quality images and sharp, slick layouts. Ideally, you have experience working with CMS systems and Mailchimp. We encourage applicants who may be studying graphic design at The Royal Academy in Copenhagen, Design School Kolding, Danish School of Media and Journalism, or the like. As a design intern at CHART your areas of work include:

– Digital design: layout, implementation and uploading of website and newsletter content

– Social media: new content ideas, production and design of visual content

– Printed media: layout of printed promotional materials and signage assignments

We will put together an individual course that best fits your professional competencies and suits your areas of interests. The internship can be planned as part of your spring semester (we are flexible with working around your exams). We hope you can start with us in Spring 2021 and continue with the team until CHART takes place in August.

CHART is the leading Nordic event for contemporary art running annually during the last weekend of August. CHART is located at Kunsthal Charlottenborg, in the heart of Copenhagen, and brings together local and international arts professionals and a diverse cultural audience to engage in the contemporary Nordic art scene. CHART’s ambitious activities include the art fair event, an emerging artists programme, thought-provoking talks series, architecture competition, and more.

If this has piqued your interest and you think you’d make an impact as part of the CHART team, please submit your CV and a cover letter to fair@chartartfair.com. Successful applicants will be invited to discuss what areas you want to gain more experience in, and what tasks and projects would best suit your skillset.

Get in touch as soon as possible, as we hire on a regular basis!

We look forward to hearing from you!
