Design Undergraduate Intern

Nike

Become a Part of the NIKE, Inc. Team

NIKE, Inc. does more than outfit the world’s best athletes. It is a place to explore potential, obliterate boundaries and push out the edges of what can be. The company looks for people who can grow, think, dream and create. Its culture thrives by embracing diversity and rewarding imagination. The brand seeks achievers, leaders and visionaries. At Nike, it’s about each person bringing skills and passion to a challenging and constantly evolving game.

Nike Designers combine relentless curiosity and passion for sport to transform the insights of athletes into innovations that advance human potential. A diverse community with expertise in apparel, footwear and graphic design as well as color experts, material designers, communicators and conceptual thinkers, Nike Design delivers innovation to athletes from insight to in-store and beyond. Like the athletes Nike serves, its designers constantly seek to raise the bar, knowing that in the pursuit of greatness, there is no finish line.

You might think of Nike as a sport and fitness brand — and we are. But at our core, Nike is a design company. We do the math and the art, the research and the refining, the conception and the crafting — everything that goes into creating great design for an entire world of sport.

Individually, we are hundreds of creatives, from diverse experiences and design disciplines, creating the products, communication and experiences you see every day.

Together, we are a world-class design community like no other, open to innovative ideas and to those willing to expand the conversation—or start a new one.

Wonder if you’re one of them?

We do too.

As a Nike Design Intern, you'll create or refresh existing designs that reflect Nike's design philosophy and inspire targeted consumers. You will execute design projects with the intent that they will go to market. You'll have the opportunity to research consumer/athlete and market needs based on a design brief. You also work on an individual design project that will culminate in a Design Gallery Show, and a cross-functional project that will be presented to Nike Executive Leadership at the end of the program.
