Evolve Growing Solutions
Visual graphics designer for horticultural food systems and buildings
 

Evolve Growing Solutions is a dynamic and innovative company in the field of advanced food production. With global population set to reach 8 billion within the next 20 years, sustainable food production is in equal parts an exciting and a pressing 21st century challenge. 

We combine technologies from various fields in order to provide bespoke solutions to these challenges. This approach is applied to cover multiple aspects of food production: design of buildings specific to purpose, turning waste streams into resources as well as bringing sustainable production to areas previously unable to be self-sufficient.

In a time where bio foods are marketed as the “sustainable product” yet not affordable to all, we strive to generate food resource solutions that are both environmentally neutral (or even positive) as well as being accessible to the average member of the local population. 

Company culture

We are a task-oriented company with a relaxed atmosphere and a focus on being adaptable. Being a smaller player in a very large industry one of our USPs as a company to our clients is our ability to generate ideas rapidly that are tailor made to the projects given.

Employees are encouraged to generate their own ideas, come up with solutions and add them to the discussion or overall solution. There is no linear “hierarchy” when it comes to innovation in our company and we actively promote personal initiative.

Sometimes your idea may solve an issue in another project and for this reason a 'no-ego' mind-set is one that we encourage.

Length of opportunity: Two weeks 

Salary/hourly rate: £515 for the two weeks, based on 30-hour weeks 

Job description:

The intern will: 

  • help guide the developers who will build and integrate the design into a JavaScript web panel.
  • gather feedback from customers.

We have a variety of exciting projects ranging from locations such as the Maldives; Qatar to more UK-based projects such as in Southampton and in the Yorkshire areas. We would look to you as an intern to turn some of our building, machines and systems designs into crisp visuals showcasing the extent of innovation we bring as a company.   

You will be given an overview of the projects including maps, various architectural or 3D CAD models and will join our team tasked to translate this information into video fly-through and images that highlight key features.

This role will have an extensive level of artistic freedom and you will be telling us how you best feel the project can be introduced and shown as examples of the fascinating field in which we work in. It will be your duty to organise the different stages of development of these visuals and highlight any potential additional information you may require. 

Skills/requirements:

Architecture, graphics design graduates; any graduates with the right areas of expertise are also encouraged to apply.  

Essential:

  • Existing portfolio of visual work
  • 3D CAD proficiency (examples: 3ds Max, Blender, AutoCAD etc.)
  • Clear communication skills
  • Strong personal initiative to leading a project
  • Ability to work as part of a team 

Desirable:

  • Previous 3D fly-through visuals
  • Examples of project management (academic or professional)
  • Ability to create visuals adapted for geography-based seasonal changes

Internship outcomes

By the end of the internship we would hope to have obtained from you visuals showcasing one of our projects. These visuals would typically be shown to prospective investors, clients and at exhibitions around the world so as a Nottingham graduate you would be showcasing your skills beyond just the realms of our company. 

This is a collaborative internship with key colleagues to maximise the internship period and build on an existing project.

We would hope a graduate would take away an increased confidence in their capacity to deliver on key projects. These visuals would greatly enhance any portfolio given the level of technology and design involved and would be an incredibly exciting opportunity for recent graduates to develop their skills.
