At Momkai, the strategic design agency, we welcome a communications strategist intern to join our international team. Help us empower communities and build new brands, with a drive to create meaningful work, guided by a strong moral compass.
Join us to help mission-driven organizations across Europe, US, and Japan. So far, we’ve helped launch global platforms, break crowdfunding world records, and build impactful brands. With the help of our new comms strategist intern, we know we can do even more.
Momkai is an award-winning strategic design agency that focuses on building membership-based communities around meaningful missions. Our global clients past and present include Adyen, Red Bull, Nike, the Royal Dutch Football Association (KNVB), Urban Land Institute, Imperial College London, and New York University.The team worked closely with the founders of VanMoof, Bugaboo, Oncode Institute, Swapfiets and Renews Japan. Momkai helped to co-found, design, and build De Correspondent, now the third largest membership journalism platform in the world (and a client for over 9 years).
We focus on memberful design — or empowering groups of people to take action together around a shared purpose. As the Momkai team, we help changemakers and founders achieve this. Thanks to our four-year collaboration with New York University, we've learned that this approach provides a better, healthier, and more sincere route to sustainability. That’s how we became the home of memberful design.
