As a Graphic Designer, you understand the power behind dynamic visual design. You know that good design is more than just “making things look pretty”. You are constantly looking for the right balance between form and function and take pride in conceptualizing and producing designs that solve needs in beautiful, creative, and efficient ways. You basically breathe, eat, and live design.
MetaProp is recruiting for a part-time, for-credit Graphic Design Intern.
