MARKETING & EVENTS GRAPHIC DESIGN INTERN

Portland Monthly, the city’s award-winning regional magazine, and SagaCity Media are
currently seeking a bright and motivated marketing design intern to assist in the Marketing &
Events department. This internship will begin in September and last 12 to 16 weeks depending
on the needs/schedule of the candidate. Weekly schedule is flexible to accommodate student
academic schedules. 20 hours per week preferred.

RESPONSIBILITIES
• Print designs (including internal event posters, flyers, certificates, signage, and promotion)
• Web content designs (including web ads, e-blasts, and various graphics)
• Updating existing design files with new text and images
• Updating and creating dynamic proposals templates and tools for business to business
outreach
• Research for design projects, including collecting photos, graphics and font files

DESCRIPTION
As an intern you will be guided by our Marketing Designer, on how to design and correctly set
up various files for print. You will also build files for the web, but you will be trained on how to
do this so your web design skills can be minimal. You will learn how to manage and organize
files on our server and work with our Production team assisting with various design projects.
This internship will give you experience working on a variety of design projects, and will
challenge you to try different techniques and styles. You will leave the internship with more
projects for your portfolio, along with the design skills to work in a fast paced environment.
