It’s Scary How Talented Our Interns Are

This semester, we had six terrifyingly talented interns join our ranks who put their all into every project that was given to them. From Designers, to Copywriters, to Account side, every intern went above and beyond with every assignment they were given. Schifino Lee is proud to show them off and we hope you’ll love them as much as we do.

India Boeckh | Illustration Intern

India graduated from Ringling this past May with a Bachelor’s in Art. While working at Schifino Lee, she has produced beautiful illustrations for clients, such as Grenlec, as well as illustrations on the Schifino Lee Instagram page for the Tampa Bay Lightning and the Buccaneers. If you ask India, though, she will tell you that her favorite part of the experience was having the opportunity to work in such a collaborative environment and being able to work on projects she otherwise wouldn’t have been able to do.

India is looking forward to finding a studio job at an animation company, hoping to pursue opportunities in the United States, Canada, or Europe.
