The Oak Park Public Library has a fall 2013 internship opportunity within our Marketing Department for a designer. Beginning in September, the intern will work with the graphic designer, and will be responsible for the production and design of a wide variety of promotional materials including posters, flyers, logos, brochures, among other possible items and applications.
This internship is part-time (10 – 12 hours per week) and typically runs the length of one semester. However, length can be adjusted based on individual school schedule and availability.
The ideal candidate should be skilled in the use of Adobe Creative Suite applications, primarily InDesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator. The intern should have a strong foundation in typography and color theory, as well as an understanding of how to prepare images for use on the web. The library will work with candidates currently enrolled in a design program to obtain school credit for the internship.
The successful candidate will work directly with our graphic designer, an award-winning illustrator with over 20 years of wide-ranging professional experience. Examples of his work can be seen on his portfolio site www.bossmangraphics.com , as well as on his regularly updated design blog bossmangraphics.tumblr.com .
Interested applicants should send a cover letter, resume and three design samples to firstname.lastname@example.org . There will be a short skills test as part of the selection process.
