The Havas UX Academy seeks to collaborate with up-and-coming user experience professionals who have a passion for emerging technologies and impactful design in order to learn from each other and grow the field together.
Working with Jeremy Franck, I helped develop and run the Experience Design internship program during the summer of 2014. The program consisted of 7 interns who were students at some of the top interactive departments in the US and abroad. The interns primarily worked on embedded teams with a mentor. They also participated in an agency-wide project to create a pitch for a real client that was presented and selected to the client at the end of the session.
