Spring is almost here but we’re ready for summer! For a few months each summer, our office gets a bit brighter as we welcome a Graphic Design intern to the Peppermill Projects and Brand Joint teams. Our combined internship program provides aspiring Graphic Designers the opportunity to put their talents to use and gain real-world branding experience in a lively creative studio in Annapolis, Maryland.

As our Graphic Design intern, you’ll learn the ins and outs of working at a full-service branding studio. You’ll work alongside our design team to create social media content, including styled photoshoots, illustrations and animation for both Peppermill and Brand Joint clients. You’ll learn new skills from our talented design team and in return, teach us what the cool kids are saying these days.

WHO YOU ARE: You have completed your Junior year at a college or university with an excellent Graphic Design program. You have a slight obsession with keeping things organized and you take deadlines seriously. You’re creative, outgoing, extremely detail-oriented and have a passion for design and typography.

Your skills include:

– Experience with the Adobe CS including InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop
– Squarespace & WordPress
– Other interactive, photography or illustration skills

WHAT YOU NEED: A strong work ethic, positive attitude, excellent communication skills, and the ability to work in a fast-paced, collaborative environment! You’ll also need to have an opinion on our office playlists.

NEXT STEPS: Email your resume and a few lines on why you should be our next intern to talent@peppermillprojects.com. Please include a link to your online portfolio. This is an unpaid internship, but suitable for college credit.

* Applications are due March 23rd. We will begin scheduling phone interviews the first week of April.
