Josh Maxwell works alongside some of the best illustrators in the industry.
If you’re a science-loving illustrator, National Geographic magazine is like Mecca.
Maxwell’s internship in Washington, D.C. makes him part of the editorial team for projects involving design, art, photography and mapping.
“The work I partake in is produced as a part of the magazine for whatever issues they may be working on at the time,” he says.
Maxwell was considering a number of internship choices this summer, but says CIA Career Center Director Amy Goldman encouraged him to seek the National Geographic gig. The magazine has a monthly circulation of about 8.5 million readers.
“It’s the perfect combination of art and science, which has always been the main focus as a biomedical art major,” Maxwell says.
As a kid, Maxwell made art with his grandparents in Beavercreek, Ohio, and watched his father make sculptures with a chainsaw. He has since parlayed his interest into a number of educational experiences, including last year’s study with a marine biology research program through Sea Semester.
At National Geographic, he works side by side with top visual journalists who have deep knowledge about science and nature and a strong desire to educate their readers through words and images.
“The best experience that I have had while at the internship so far was my first time that I got to meet Fernando Baptista,” Maxwell says. “He is the in-house illustrator for many of the visuals in the magazine. I have been an admirer of his work for many years, using him as inspiration in my own work.”
Maxwell met Baptista a few times before the veteran asked him to help out on a few projects.
Nothing is better than working side by side with someone you look up to in your profession,” he says.
