Featured Design Studio

Foreign Policy Design Group

November 2018

Creative Director/Principal of Foreign Policy Design Group and total legend/boss lady Yah-Leng Yu is up to amazing things! Having impact on the design scene globally, we're loving what Foreign Policy is bringing to the table. Check out wat Yah-Leng has to share about internships and a few of her top design crushes right now (we love them too!)

Where did you study and what were some of your first jobs?

I went to the Art Institute of Boston (now Lesley University)

Give us the elevator pitch on what you do.

We are a design and innovation bureau — a creative think tank of artists, analysts, strategists and makers bringing the best of their expertise, experience and intuition to define and solve problems in unexpected ways.

Who are your top six design crushes right now?

Whats your take on internships? (do you take interns now?)

Internships are super important for any student-designers or young designers to have a taste of what it is really like in a forever work-in-progress real-life design studio — which is fast-paced and intense, demanding and requires someone to learn very quickly on their feet. We will try to guide them and give them as much exposure as possible while on training wheels. Yes we do have a interns usually for a 3–6 months period at a time.

What do you look for in a great client?

Someone who is visionary, who is open to take some risks, who respect design and who trusts us do our work.

What qualities and skills to you look for in a graduate?

Passion and hunger to do good work.

Humility to learn from others.

Common sense.

  • Internships are free to post, but please be respectful! This is is not a free design service. Our student and graduate following is of the highest quality and we want to honour their talent. Please respect the students and other commitments they might have time/money wise when submitting your ad. Thanks!
  • We love jobs! And so does our audience. Because our following is mostly students and graduates, the best jobs to advertise are for junior and mid weight roles. Specially graphic design, digital design, typography and illustration. Please note these are paid full time or part time roles, so if you have a one off project to advertise, put it under our Freelance jobs dropdown instead. Thanks!

  • Welcome to our new section for freelance one-off jobs! To keep things simple, we want to connect you with the talent by advertising what you need, and encouraging people to email you directly with an example of their work. You can choose who to work with from all the submissions you receive. Everything is done online, and you can expect a designer to be dealing with you remotely. The good news is you won’t be limited to talent locally - this is advertised in each of our cities, meaning you will get a much higher standard of work to choose from. Picking a budget is very hard - we do not encourage work for a fiver like some websites, because you will end up with something worth a fiver!

    Our community is full of the best emerging talent, and a average price should be around half of that of a professional. Our community is full of the best talent, and a average price should be around $65 p/h.
