3 - 6 month Internships


We consider it a huge privilege to be able to do work that we love, and think it would be wrong to simply keep it to ourselves. That’s why we enjoy hosting internships and doing our bit in inspiring and up-skilling the next generation of illustrators and animators. If you’re interested in joining us for an internship (or even a job shadow), drop us a mail with your current portfolio, and we’ll be in touch. Space is limited, so don’t delay.

Current Interns

Introducing Pablo (from Spain) and Kirsten (from South Africa). They are both young up-and-coming illustrators/animators with heaps of potential who we're happy to be able to host over the next few months. 

Keep an eye out on our blog for some of their work that we'll be sharing, and if you're interested in becoming an intern at Studio Bolland, please get in touch via the form at the bottom of this page.

I came to Cape Town to work a five month internship at Studio Bolland, which I had previosly stumbled upon on Dribbble, and I immediatly loved their work. It was an amazing place to strengthen the foundations of what I had learnt in college and further boost my knowledge and skill. It’s a small team made out of great people who will always be happy to help you if you need.
I got the chance to work on a number of very different projects most of which were interesting and pleasant to work on, and had many learning opportunities in both the animation and illustration departments.
One of the things I like most about Studio Bolland is of course the great team and the role that interns are given and the way they are dealt with. I have worked for other companies in the past that rest on their interns to do a lot of the work, especially the type of jobs that nobody else wants and I have definitely felt the pressure at times. Here however, I have been able to feel like one more of the team but at the same time I have felt like my learning is as important to them as it is for me, which is very appreciated.
In conclusion, Studio Bolland is such a great place to work with and I have learnt so much about the industry during my time here. I am so grateful to have had such an opportunity which has not only allowed me to grow proffesionally but to also live in a different city, step out of my comfort zone and meet great new people
