Graphic Design Internships Available
October 25, 2018
Fierce Creative Agency is looking for graphic design interns for both in-office (day hours) and out-of-office (overnight) work. These are paid positions. The individual would be given deadline-driven assignments with specific direction and expectations for high-quality delivery of each project. The intern selected to join the Fierce team in this Graphic Design position can choose to apply for one or both positions. You would need to be self-motivated and deadline-driven, yet able to work in a collaborative space with our team.
These internship opportunities are ideal for the college student looking to get their foot in the door and some agency experience on their resume.
Here’s the breakdown
For the overnight (remote) position, we often get requests for overnight turns of presentation work for our clients. If you’re a night owl looking to gain some agency experience, this may be the perfect fit. The projects involving overnight work are where the assets would be delivered to the intern by 8 p.m. CT. You would have an hour to review the files, ask questions (either via email or phone) and then begin working by 9 p.m. CT with an expected delivery by 4 a.m. (Note: projects would not take the full 8 hours to complete, but this would be your window to complete the assignment.) We would then take the project in house and run it to final by 8 a.m. CT. Note: This position will not require you to work every night.
The intern assigned to overnight turn of design work would be working primarily in Microsoft PowerPoint, Adobe InDesign and Adobe Illustrator. If these programs are not available to you already, we would set you up with what you need to complete the work. Projects may include but not be limited to: layout design of pitch presentations most often needed in PowerPoint, infographics designed using illustrator and some long-form design projects set in InDesign (think magazine style). This position would be paid a flat rate per project. Projects would not be every night, but as requested.
For the in-house opportunity, we would set up your available hours to come into our office (815 North Second Street, St. Charles, MO) and assist our design project workflow. You would work on projects ranging from edits to existing projects, creation of social graphics for client work, infographics, marketing collateral and some powerpoint presentation work. You would assist the team in whatever project needed work that day and/or some longer-term projects assigned to you as well. This position will be paid hourly with a set schedule each week.
Must be familiar with the following programs:
- Adobe Photoshop
- Adobe InDesign
- Adobe Illustrator
- Microsoft PowerPoint

If you’re interested in joining the Fierce Creative team, please bring your A-game, your kickin’ portfolio and two references (professors, editors, relevant work experience professionals) that can vouch for your work ethic and ability to meet deadlines.
Come exceed expectations with us. Be a part of the Fierce hustle.
