WonderLab Graphic Design Interns are inspired, driven creatives with a strong understanding of visual communication, page composition and information hierarchy. Graphic design interns should be comfortable working quickly on multiple assignments with tight deadlines. Basic position tasks include: updating existing designs with correct information, altering designs to work in multiple formats (eps, tiff, jpg, vector), maintaining and developing WonderLab’s brand identity in all marketing materials, and creating designs with a good balance of text and visuals. More experienced interns may work on original design and branding projects, large format posters, or multipage documents. Lead Graphic Design Interns will also serve as advisors regarding visual elements for the rest of the marketing team. Possible design projects for each position include: posters, brochures, banners, signs, print ads, online ads, special event invites and materials, and graphics for website and social media channels.
All Graphic Design Intern applicants must have a high level of expertise with Adobe Creative Cloud applications on an Apple platform, especially InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop. Applicants must be able to work independently on multiple tasks and meet deadlines. Graphic Design majors (Jr., Sr., BFA candidates) and those with illustration experience preferred.
Lead Graphic Design Interns work approx. 10-12 hours per week with mandatory attendance at weekly marketing team meetings and have some supervisory tasks. Entry Level Graphic Design Interns work 8-10 hours per week. Positions are available with work-study funding, for course credit or unpaid.
