Wonderland new

talent program

You’ve done the hard yards, put in the effort, and got yourself this far! Now the fun can really start and you can put your passion into practice as part of an award-winning studio alongside our team of talented creatives.

Open position

We’re looking for multidisciplinary designers at the start of their careers to join our team and gain some hands-on experience within our studio. Over the course of the six-month traineeship, you’ll gain experience in both client-facing design work and in developing your own professional skills.

Our trainees work side-by-side with our senior designers, strategists, and client managers, and have an equal voice at every table when it comes to deciding design directions.

Through our traineeship, the successful applicants are offered the opportunity to not only grow as a professional but also to gain studio support in developing their own personal project. Regardless of whether it’s a side hustle, a business idea, or a graduation project that you feel has legs beyond the classroom, we’re here to help you carry it forward and turn it into something real. All that we ask in return is that your project is built around a positive impact, such as education or sustainability. Seems like a fair trade, right?

Traineeship Curriculum

The six months are split 50/50 between client work and your personal project, however, this can vary from week-to-week, depending on deadlines and deliverables.

client work

As a Wonderland trainee, you will work with our team on a variety of projects across our studio, with no restrictions on discipline, client, or skillset. Our goal is to help you grow as a professional and to maximise your exposure to new skills and specialisations.

personal project

Alongside your client work, we will also help you turn a creative project into a reality, provided it has a positive impact at its core. As a studio, we are pushing hard to be more consciously driven in the work we produce, and on creating internal projects that focus on external good. When it comes to your project, we will help you turn an idea, half-started concept, or design project into a reality, regardless of the end goal.

Learning By Doing It - Michelle Kee

The talent program proved to be more than what I expected going in. I knew how lucky I was to get to work with a talented team of designers, managers, and strategists, but I didn’t know how much the program would push me to learn to lead, inspire, pitch, negotiate, ask, and make important decisions. If you have an idea that you want to see through, it’s the best kind of opportunity.

FAQ
ABOUT THE PROJECT
WONDERLAND’S SUPPORT
PROJECT TEAM
DURATION AND TIME
GOING FORWARD
How developed does the project have to be when applying?

Ideally, the project would have passed the conceptualisation phase and moved on to design. The design can be in its initial phases of exploration, as we have a team who can help push it further and define it with you. If you already have insights on which aspects of the project you would like to improve, that would be a great place to start.

Can I apply even if my project doesn’t have a do-good initiative at its core?

If you have a project that you feel really strongly about, but that’s not driven by a do-good purpose, you can still apply. All we would ask in this situation is that if we choose you as a trainee, that you would be open to us helping you find a positive impact that could be achieved with your project.

Does the result of the project always have to be a digital product (i.e., website, application, AR/VR, etc)?

Nope- although we mostly produce digital products, this does not have to be the case for the program. The end result can be a physical product, or anything else for that matter, but keep in mind that the project’s process has to be in a medium in which we can help and have an impact. For example, a graphic design project that results in a line of merchandise still falls within our area of expertise.

We collaborate with
ambitious brands and people.
