Hello! We're looking for a motivated, over-achieving design intern to join our team for the Fall! You'd be a member of a tight-knit design team and take part in multiple design projects during your time here. The internship is full-time, in the studio, during normal work hours (so only local or will-definitely-be-local applicants please). The internship is unpaid though we provide a fixed stipend to cover commuting expenses.

Our ideal candidate will have the following qualities and be able to demonstrate / speak to them:
  • Strong typography, layout skills, and understanding of core design principles
  • Strong in Adobe Creative Suite (in particular: InDesign, Illustrator, Photoshop)
  • Excellent communication skills and a clear ability to reference and articulate design
  • Self-motivated; ability to work well in a small group setting
  • Meticulous about design details with great organizational skills
  • Creativity outside the computer
  • Photography, Illustration, and Web skills (Sketch / Adobe Xd) are always a plus!

Please send a cv, portfolio / samples and a note about yourself in pdf format to info@polygraphcreative.com. Please use “2017 Fall Design Intern at Polygraph” in your email subject line. Applications that do not include these items will not be considered (be clear and intentional; don't be lazy!).
