Graphic Design Intern

Ready to utilize your graphic design, art direction, illustration, and motion graphics skills? We’re looking for a driven and resourceful graphic designer to join our team as a summer intern. As a Graphic Design Summer Intern, you’ll have the opportunity to help us showcase all that we do here at Collective-- from our consulting practice to our Accelerators and beyond!

We are committed to making access to internships available to people across all backgrounds. Because of this, internship hours are flexible (a minimum of 15 hours a week is expected), remote work is available, and each 12-week internship comes with a $1,500 stipend.

Not-so-fun fact: Research shows that while men apply to jobs when they meet an average of 60% of the criteria, women and other marginalized folks tend to only apply when they check every box. Think you have what it takes, but not sure you check every box? Reach out to us anyways. We’d love to talk and determine together whether you could be a great fit!
