My my, your big old computer or fancy internet phone has brought you here. Step 1. Complete. Step 2 is to read all the below information and decide if Step 3 is in the cards.

Whalebone Magazine Creative Intern Position

Location: Jacksonville Beach, FL
Dates: January–April 2019

What to Expect

  • Tons of ass kicking
  • Creative excellence—from you, from us, and always as a team
  • Some amazingly boring and fantastically tedious design work (we’ve all been there)
  • Working closely in assisting our Art Director
  • Overdosing on high-fives
  • Time travel, needed for staying ahead of current design trends
  • Tight deadlines and quick thinking

Qualifications

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 Art Director. Projects will include (but not be limited to): publication design (editorial and advertorial), concepting, production assistance, digital newsletter and email design, social media concepting and photography/retouching.

A Few Tips

  • MUST have a portfolio (website or PDF under 5MB)—applicants without a portfolio will not be reviewed and will be publicly shamed
  • 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?
