  • Some amazingly boring and fantastically tedious design work (we’ve all been there)
  • Working closely in assisting our Creative Director and Art Director
  • Time travel, needed for staying ahead of current design trends
  • Implementing designs from creative team to various platforms (web, social, print and production)
  • Tight deadlines and quick thinking


Must have a solid working knowledge of Adobe Creative Suite, an eye for design and strange love for typography is a must. Creative interns work within the creative department under the direct supervision of our Creative Director and Art Director. Projects will include (but not be limited to): social media content creation, production assistance, digital newsletter, email, web design, and photography/retouching. Video and animation experience is a plus.

  • Must have a sense of humor
  • No Word docs for resumes—PDF only
  • Submit social handles
  • Resumes without typos (resumes with typos are disqualified, sucka!)
  • Resumes must showcase your type skills (be designed). Like, are you a human under it all?
