GRAPHIC DESIGN INTERN
The FRONT is seeking a Graphic Design Intern for spring semester 2018 (January-May, start and end dates flexible). The Graphic Design Intern will, under the supervision of the head of our social media department and our post-production team, learn what it’s like to work in a small but fast-paced and energetic media start-up. They will have the opportunity to contribute to creative discussions and get hands-on experience helping to design web content. Most importantly, they will be able to learn from professionals in the field and develop their graphic design skills in a creative, supportive, and educational environment.
The FRONT is a new media cult and creative cultural force built on feminism. Run by an all-female executive team, we incubate, develop and produce stories through an alternative female lens (including female-identifying and trans). Each story we tell becomes an opportunity to engage our community – artists, activists, musicians, scientists, designers, and marketers – to create a universe that lives offline as well as on. We value diversity; people of color, Native people, and people from the LGBTQ+ and disabled communities are encouraged to apply.
-Must be currently enrolled as a student and able to take the internship for course credit. We will require a letter or other statement from your educational institution (on university letterhead) stating that you will be receiving credit for the internship.
-Must submit a brief cover letter and portfolio as part of the review process. You can send these to email@example.com.
-Graphic design experience; experience with Google Slides and Keynote
-Experience with the following applications favored – Adobe Photoshop, InDesign, Illustrator, Premiere
-An extra plus if you know WordPress or light html!
-An open mind and a creative eye. We’re looking for a fresh take, a positive attitude, and a commitment to growth & learning.
-Taking part in graphic design projects, with supervision and guidance from our Creative Lead
-Collaborating on and contributing creative ideas for social media
-Assisting with graphic needs for The FRONT’s website
