VSA Interns Complete 2011 Summer Program

Read the full story on VSA Partners website.

Eight undergraduate interns from colleges across the United States completed their VSA internships in August, leaving behind contributions to multiple VSA clients.

The multidisciplinary program was a pilot initiative that brought together interns in the fields of brand strategy, design, writing and operations. The interns were embedded on VSA teams and assigned to clients including IBM, Avery-Dennison, Best Buy, Harley Davidson, and GE Healthcare, with expectations for contributions to strategic and creative work. Mentors from each VSA team provided guidance throughout the three-month internships.

Beyond their client assignments, the interns’ major accountabilities was developing the strategy, positioning and design for the program itself. The interns also developed a promotion and collateral system for on-campus outreach and recruiting.

Members of VSA’s 2011 summer intern class (from left to right) are: William “Buddy” Boor, Michigan State University, Erica Kirsch, Parsons School of Design, Corey Margulis, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Peta Niehaus, Northern Kentucky University, Kelsey Collister, Loyola University, Brandon Alvarado, Iowa State University, Matthew Koval, Oregon University, and Julia Curry, DePaul University. Next spring, VSA will announce plans to open the application process for its summer 2012 internship program.
