Great Lakes Publishing is currently seeking an advertising design intern in its Cleveland office. The ideal candidate is entering his/her junior or senior year and is a graphic design, visual communications, design/technology, art or marketing major. Recent grads are welcome to apply, as well. This is an unpaid internship. Preference will be given to students where the internship can qualify for college credit. We are seeking candidates that are available 20 hours per week or more. Scheduling and hours are flexible. The internship, even though it includes actual operation of the facilities of Great Lakes Publishing Company, is similar to training which would be given in an educational environment during an academic semester.
Interns will be supervised while creating advertisements through final approval, coordinating advertisement production, pre-flighting advertisements, placing advertisements in layouts, preparing art files for digital publishing and creating web advertisements. The candidate will learn about the entire print and digital publication process during their time at Great Lakes Publishing. We are looking for this to be a meaningful professional development opportunity for the one candidate we select for each academic semester.
We are looking for a student with strong layout and typography skills with a working knowledge of InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator and Acrobat.
Interested candidates should send, by mail or email, a cover letter, resume and portfolio or design samples to: Alyson Moutz (firstname.lastname@example.org). No phone calls, please.
