The graphic design internship will provide you with the unique experience to participate in the work and growth of a small business. You’ll work on a variety of projects that require visual story telling and graphic design and will expose you to different areas of marketing, brand partnerships, talent and the arts. The work environment is exciting, hands-on and you will find that the tasks vary day to day and week to week based on the different clients and projects we work on. The internship is unpaid, but we offer school credit and letters of recommendation. Currently, the team is working in the office (located in NYC; Soho) on a hybrid schedule (2x a week). We are flexible with working remote.
We are looking for a part to full-time graphic design intern (rising-senior level) who can work with us during the fall 2021 semester (or sooner, if desired!). This candidate should be responsible and resourceful. This candidate should be a responsible and resourceful intern with excellent research and organizational skills, attention to detail and an eagerness to learn. We don’t micro-manage our interns and believe you get out of the internship what you put into it! You should have strong communication and writing skills, be proactive, have computer proficiency with Apple products and be fluent with InDesign, KeyNote, Photoshop, and Illustrator. We prefer our interns have experience with creating decks, logo design, and organizing information that has strong visual communication. Additionally, we look for individuals who are attentive to trend shifts and personally interested in culture outside of design as well: photography, art, fashion, celebrities, social media, collaborations and the news. We want someone who is passionate about the space we’re working in and not afraid to share ideas and insightful information they’re seeing and work alongside our research interns, as needed. We don’t micro-manage our interns and believe what you get out of the internship will be what you put into it!

“One of my favorite things I have gotten so far out of this internship is how much I’m learning about culture, despite being someone who was already interested in it. I have discovered so
many new artists, influencers, and brands throughout the past couple of months. As a designer and artist myself, if I knew just how much I would have had a chance to research and learn about the arts/artists, I would have been even more interested. For graphic design students, it’s a great opportunity.”
