Graphic Designer Summer Internship | Minneapolis

The Engine is seeking a driven graphic design intern with a flexible skill set, who’s looking to learn how to create a brilliant brand or stunning website, all in the same week. You must be quick and collaborative. Our work is rooted in strategy expressed through head-turning execution. We love challenging the expected and approaching design from different directions. You should, too.

We value our interns and promote their professional development during the term. Learn how to meet daily, weekly, and long-term deadlines in a fast-paced environment.

You will work closely with the design and marketing teams to design clear, engaging graphic communications for print and web. This will include branding, campaign work, interactive, social media, collateral, presentations, and other projects as needed.

You'll also work closely with a multidisciplinary team to conceptualize and create a variety of projects from the ground up - all at our new office, downtown Minneapolis.


• Fundamental understanding of how to create graphics and a solid grasp of design concepts

• Comfortable working in Adobe Creative Suite, including Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator

• Enthusiasm for the design process and attentiveness to different project goals

• Junior, Senior, or Graduate student status (or equivalent)

• Ability to work 20 hours per week in our Minneapolis studio

• Great attitude, sense of humor, and collaborative spirit

Bonus Nuggets (awesome, but not required):

• A great sense of humor

• Design-focused research skills

If this sounds like you, get in touch.

Hours / Compensation:

A graphic design internship at The Engine is Red primes you for future in-house work at other companies or with advertising agencies. You’ll benefit from the guidance of world-class designers and leave the experience with a portfolio of polished work.

In addition, we respect our interns and the work they produce for us, and pay as such: offering $15/hour compensation for our part-time summer interns.

To apply, please send work samples (or web link), a resume, and a few paragraphs about yourself.
