THE JOB

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. We are looking for a student in a graduate or undergraduate program (we will also consider recent graduates in certain circumstances). Candidates must be able to commit to at least twenty (20) hours per week during the summer semester.

The ideal candidate likes tech and has worked at a startup or wants to be an entrepreneur someday. A person who loves working collaboratively but can achieve goals independently, moves fast, and has limitless creativity would fit in well with our team. At MetaProp we work really hard and accomplish 2X what one can in a corporate setting with a small team of creative, smart, and ambitious people.

  • Provide user-centered design expertise from concept to delivery

  • Collaborate with stakeholders to ensure consistency of brand identity

THE IDEAL CANDIDATE

  • Well-versed in Illustrator, Photoshop, InDesign and other Adobe Creative Suite programs

  • Good use of fonts, layout, color and general design concepts

  • Good eye for design, with a modern and balanced aesthetic
