Rebuilding lives. Together.

Graphic Designer (Intern, Unpaid)

What is Duet?

Duet is an online philanthropic platform that enables donors to provide meaningful aid to vulnerable families in a more dignified, efficient, and personal way. Families request the exact items they need to rebuild their lives, and donors pay for those items on their behalf. We currently provide support to refugee families in Greece, and are actively expanding to COVID-19 relief in LA as well.

Who is Duet?

We are a group of 7 USC students and recent graduates who are building Duet out of the Innovation in Engineering Design for Global Challenges class. We have been operating since March 2019. Since then, we have facilitated over $40,000 in donations and built a donor community of over 350 members.

Duet has been featured in Viterbi News and Marshall News.

Duet is currently registered as a nonprofit, and is pending 501(c)(3) status.

The Role

Duet is looking for a self-motivated and collaborative graphic designer to help strengthen the visual identity of our unique marketplace approach towards effective philanthropy. You will play a central role in an agile nonprofit organization that is serious about using technology for social good. We are excited to expand our marketing efforts across social media as well as guerrilla marketing strategies. 

The expected time commitment is about 10-15 hours per week for 12 weeks.

You will:

  • Create various brand assets for web and print to strengthen Duet's brand
  • Design infographics to engage social media audiences
  • Manage multiple projects from concept through completion
  • Support team by communicating with them to provide the assets they need efficiently


This position might be a great fit if:

  • Degree or coursework in graphic design
  • Knowledge of typography and layout design
  • Proficiency in Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator
  • Ability to meet deadlines consistently
  • Good communication skills and a willingness to collaborate

Bonus Points:

  • Illustration

Why Duet?

Duet offers an opportunity to improve real lives, solve hard problems, and to make the world a smaller, friendlier place. You will spearhead the design of major brand assets while being a part of a supportive and engaged team of fellow changemakers who are determined to grow this into a sustainable long-term venture. (We are planning to start fundraising in earnest over the coming months, or as soon as we have our 501(c)(3) certification).

Assuming all goes well, there is also the possibility of extending this internship into a permanent position past Fall 2020. Join us in rebuilding lives, together.
