Project Description

The National Museum of American Diplomacy will be the first museum in the nation dedicated to telling the story of diplomacy and of the diplomats who have served and sacrificed for their country since the founding of our nation. Our mission is to educate and inspire all visitors through engaging programs and exhibits that showcase how diplomacy has shaped our nation’s history and how diplomacy continues to play a vital role in their lives. The NMAD Education Program illuminates the world of American diplomacy for students through high-quality, hands-on simulations, storytelling, and artifacts.

NMAD’s education team manages a robust series of resources on the museum’s website, to which it’s constantly adding. All of the current and new materials need branding and design in accordance with NMAD’s style guide. These materials include student worksheets, teacher manuals, promotional materials, presentations, and more. Although all materials will be designed to complement the look and feel of the museum, there is room for creative input!

NMAD seeks an intern to redesign new physical and digital materials according to the museum’s style guide. Your designs will be presented to our staff for feedback and input. We recommend that an intern who fills this position have a mentor, professor, or instructor who can assist with technical guidance and questions. In your application, include information on your proficiency and experience with design software and platforms. You will need to have your own access to these programs. Previous interns have used Adobe Indesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop. If interested, intern(s) may be asked to assist with content development. This would consist of defining words, concepts, and phrases that are integral to the future museum.
