Sparq Hires La Roche College Design Intern for Summer 2019
PITTSBURGH — This spring Sparq hired a design intern to work alongside the existing design team, working on social, web, and print design, as well as assist in rebrand projects. Rising La Roche College senior Adam Greb began his summer-long internship with Sparq on May 13 and has already become a great asset to the company.
“I believe that Sparq will provide me with a number of experiences that will allow me to be a more well-rounded designer,” Greb said. “I want to experience working in a professional, team-based setting and improve upon my multi-tasking skills. This includes learning to design for and work with a variety of clients at any given time. This internship will also allow me to experiment with different design styles and deliverables that I am less familiar with. I am very excited to see what I can learn over the next few months!”
While this is Greb’s first professional position, he has taken the lead on major design projects through his program and holds leadership roles within the graphic design major and extracurriculars spanning across campus life at La Roche.
“Having an internship with Sparq is really different than the conventional internship in the sense that you get to be hands-on as soon as you walk in the door,” said Chad Parise, one of Sparq’s graphic designers. “You have countless opportunities to learn and work on various projects that will further strengthen, not only your knowledge, but your overall skills as a professional, and that’s what makes it such a great place to intern at. We want our interns to feel like they are apart of something bigger here and we give them a platform to let their creativity flow.”
Sparq looks forward to seeing what Adam can learn from the internship, as well as watching his fresh perspective transform some of our design projects.
