Visual Design Intern

Design interns at Mighty Citizen don’t grab coffee or answer phones. They work on real business challenges and contribute to the success of the agency.

Here are a few things to know—we’re a data-driven shop, which means interns get a holistic view of client problems and how to solve them. We work for mission-driven clients, which means civic work is at the center of everything we do. We work on a variety of projects, so being flexible and detail-oriented is required.

A portfolio of great student work will get you in the door, but professionalism and punctuality are key. You’ll be responsible for a mix of hands-on design, production work, some strategy, and administrative tasks. In return, your experience will flex your software skills, refine your design eye, and develop your strategic thinking.

Also, this internship is paid, $12 an hour, 15 hours per week. (That’s a lot of ramen.) If you’d like school credit too, we’re happy to help with that.

Check the responsibilities and requirements below and apply. Be sure to include your availability too. If your skills match what we’re looking for, we’ll be in touch. Good luck!
