We can’t do it without you!

Eastlake Studio is a creative team of designers out to change the world we work, live and play in, one incredible project at a time. We have been solving tough design problems for over thirty years and if you have the right stuff we’d like you to join us! When you join our crew, you’re joining a tight-knit bunch passionate about creating inspiring spaces, willing to put in the hard work required of being the best and determined to have a lot of fun along the journey. It’s important to us that each member of the studio contributes positively to the group by devising new ways to solve problems, making time to support their peers, and bringing a positive attitude to every project they come across.


If this sounds like you, we want to hear from you! Please review the requirements and submit your portfolio in the form below.



About the Role:

The design intern comes to us with at least two years of education from an accredited interior design, interior architecture, architecture or allied design program and a strong recommendation from educators, peers and employers. While a goal of an internship is learning, we expect the learning to be a two-way exchange. What can you contribute? While with the studio you will support project teams in all phases of project work.

The Ideal Candidate:

Our ideal candidate is quick, eager, passionate about design and ready to hit the ground running. Our interns display a curious mind and ask thoughtful questions, as a high level of team communication is key in everything we do. We highly value your ability to bring great, fresh ideas to the team that are project appropriate, capturing the right look and attitude, as well as your ability to articulate why you feel a concept meets the needs of the project. You show your professional integrity by taking pride, ownership and responsibility for your own work.

Relevant Qualifications:

The candidate will come to the position with the abilities described in our skills list. If you don’t have all of the skills don’t worry—but be ready to show us how you plan to conquer the design world!
