Graphic Design Intern

We’re hiring a Graphic Design Intern!
Artslandia internships offer undergraduate and/or graduate students the opportunity to gain meaningful learning experiences in the exciting field of magazine publishing.

The graphic design intern will assist our publishing and creative firm with the design and production of Artslandia, Artslandia Kids and Artslandia at the Performance. We are seeking an upbeat, self-starting, enthusiastic team player that thrives in a fast paced environment. This internship will be in-person and will not be able to be completed remotely. You will be provided a desk and ample workspace at the Artslandia office. Having a computer and access to graphic design and layout software is preferred but not required. You will report directly to the Publisher and Senior Designer(s) who will work with you to ensure your learning objectives are met. This internship is unpaid.

As an Artslandia intern, we consider you to be as much a part of the team as any other staff member. The main distinction is this position is solely a learning position. We expect you to ask questions when they arise – about anything! The Publisher / Sr. Designer will conduct weekly check-ins to ensure that you are grasping the required information and learning at a pace that is appropriate to you.
