SGXU - Sparks Grove Experience University
A real client, a real challenge, and the creation of a real solution.
Sparks Grove is an experience design firm and a division of management consulting firm North Highland. We help our clients design and build experiences that solve business challenges. We believe every business challenge is ultimately a human one. And that a great experience, one that simply connects to a person’s reason, emotion, and purpose, will reward a smart brand. We root our experiences in sound strategy and insights. We design them to be beautiful and inspiring. We execute them across digital, environmental, transactional, and communication platforms.
Our firm is staffed with an intentional diversity – of people, experiences, and roles. We collaborate and iterate against big problems with creative thinking, planning, and execution. We work with our clients, not for them. We are here for their long-term benefit.

The SGXU Internship Program provides paid, on-the-job experience to students in the categories of UX, Strategy, and Design, and is located at our headquarters in Atlanta, GA. The program lasts 8 weeks from Monday, June 5, 2017 to Friday, July 28, 2017.
