Graphic Design Intern


Use your design power to change the world a little bit. Salter>Mitchell is seeking a graphic design intern to help us make what’s good for the world also fun, easy and popular. We’re a small purpose-driven agency seeking a designer with strong foundational knowledge in layout, color, grids, icons, typography and hierarchy who has an eye for details, a spark of creativity and a passion for usability — someone who can multitask and handle a range of creative work. While the main focus of this internship will be visual content layout for print or digital media, on any given day you could also be strategizing usability and user-flow for a website, managing a project with a client, or participating in a branding session. Internships are our path to entry-level employment so we are eager to find someone passionate about design, aware of the latest trends and willing to learn new technologies, who is likely to fit neatly with our hard-working but casual and easy-going culture.

Skills & Requirements:

  • Computer skills must include: Adobe Creative Cloud Suite for a Mac system, including thorough understanding and use of InDesign, Illustrator and Photoshop
  • Strong knowledge of setting up files for print and web formats with the ability to design a basic print or web page layout.
  • Ability to manage multiple priorities efficiently and effectively, making timely decisions in order to meet project deadlines and business needs
  • Desire to take ownership and be creative
  • Strong communication skills with the ability to collaborate or work independently
  • And one other job requirement from which no one is exempt: Each employee must be nice. Weird, we know. We’re like that.

Would also be nice to know if you have experience in any of the below:

  • User Experience (UX) Design
  • Web development
  • Project management
  • 508 Compliance

The internship is 20 hours a week at $10.50/hr.
