GRAPHIC DESIGN INTERN
You will work on a variety of design projects (identity, print and mostly web) with an emphasis on marketing to help build a brand. I am looking for strong concepts, good typography, a strong understanding of the web, good use of grids and color, and appropriate styles for respective projects. There should be some thought behind your work. You will get hands-on experience how a design studio works, including various stages of projects from concept to completion along with participating in office duties in our creative shop. This position is a great opportunity for someone to learn the ins and outs of running a professional design business in a casual work environment.

“Having more then few design intern type jobs under my belt working at Spitfiregirl is definitely one of the best opportunities and experiences I have had so far. I always felt truly valued and appreciated. I was trusted and expected to do a level of work I knew I could achieve under the right direction and input. I learned lots of helpful tips and ways to handle design and showcasing work, was able to work with good direct feedback, was able to exercise my creative directions and personal talents at times, and was always well aware of what I was expected to do and achieve during my time there. Heidi is always fair and direct when addressing design and any other communications, and was always mindful that I was a full-time student and while I was working my hours and interested and supportive in what I was doing in my school life. I definitely have grown as a designer during my experience.” -Kate, Design Intern
