You’ll work alongside our design team to create social media content, including styled photoshoots, illustrations and animation. You’ll sit in on brainstorming meetings and help our awesome clients develop brand strategy and creative solutions. Our goal is to help you build your portfolio and provide you with the skills and enthusiasm for starting your career in Graphic Design!
