Rebuilding lives. Together.

Graphic Designer (Intern, Volunteer, Remote)

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 have delivered COVID-19 relief in LA as well.

Who is Duet?

We are a group of 9 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 $75,000 in donations and built a donor community of over 500 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.

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 this summer.

  • Create various brand assets for web to strengthen Duet's brand

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 Summer 2021. Join us in rebuilding lives, together.
