Project Intern for “Next Stop: Democracy!”
Here’s My Chance |
Paid Internship for Summer 2015
Philadelphia, PA
Here’s My Chance (HMC) is an award-winning creative agency that builds good brands by design. Our mission is to create impactful, engaging designs that motivate people and lead to organizational success.

Proudly headquartered in Philadelphia PA, our clients span the globe and include nonprofits and socially responsible companies that work to create positive change. We specialize in branding, graphic design, videos, websites and infographics. Our creative solutions and talented team guide organizations in effectively communicating their message.

HMC was recently selected as one of 32 Knight Cities Challenge winners, supported by the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation. Our project is called “Next Stop: Democracy!” and aims to use creative placemaking and wayfinding to increase civic engagement during the upcoming 2015 Mayoral Election in Philadelphia.

“Next Stop: Democracy!” (NSD) seeks to improve civic spaces in two ways: by creating and distributing signage made by local artists across the city that clearly shows voters where their polling places are located, and commissioning site-specific performances to keep spirits high when lines at the polling places are long.

With these creative interventions, the project seeks to infuse the voting process with an energy of excitement and joy. This project will require a huge amount of cross-sector collaboration between government agencies, public, private, and nonprofit organizations.

The Project Intern for NSD must be passionate about democracy, knowledgeable about local elections, and motivated to create positive change in Philadelphia. You must be ready to jump straight into a fast-moving project at a leading creative agency with great clients and great staff. Applicants must be knowledgeable in the basics of local government and Philadelphia politics – particularly with regard to elections and voting.
