design and art director internships

Become a Lucky Intern

Our interns get their hands dirty in brand strategy, design, and marketing campaigns. If you’re an aspiring designer or art director—get on it. Imagine being paid to try all your crazy ideas out on us? And you’ll report directly to a senior creative god or goddess. You’ll be so lucky. From our SoMa office, Bart’s an 8-minute stroll. Willie Mays Plaza and Red’s Java House is a 15-minute saunter. Or boogaloo to Caltrain in 20. Your kicks—your choice.

skills include

We’re realistic about the skill set a senior or graduate level intern brings to the creative table but we do expect a working knowledge of the following processes: advertising, brand strategy, brand identity, creative strategy, environmental graphics, literature, printing processes, production, and website design.

an intern’s week

You’ll attend creative and strategy sessions. Drink beer. Handle production and design. Walk dogs. Conduct and gather research. Answer the phone. File and retrieve stuff. Go to press checks and photo sessions. Pickup laundry. Assist in miscellaneous tasks. Watch the sun rise. (We’re kidding about two of these—guess which ones.)

requirements

Must be a senior or graduate from a design/advertising program and can commit to six-weeks (or 240+ flexible hours). Replies will be sent to qualified candidates who follow directions. Send introduction, resume, and portfolio to Laura Gross at laura@michaelpatrickpartners.com. Bay Area residents only. No recruiters. No dopes.
