Design Intern - Summer 2016

The Company

The Desai Accelerator is a collaborative effort at the University of Michigan between the Zell Lurie Institute of Entrepreneurial Studies at the Ross School of Business and the Center for Entrepreneurship at the College of Engineering. The Desai Accelerator provides the physical infrastructure, financial resources, and mentorship to support early-stage ventures through their development. The summer 2016 cohort consisted of six companies - Ash and Anvil, Clash Audio, Gaudium, MySwimPro, Roomations, and Sultant.

My Role

I served as a design intern across all six companies, as well as worked on projects with Desai, predominately working on brand development and digital design. Some of my tasks included logo design, front-end web development, market research, customer service, flyer creation, content creation, and social media strategy.
