We’re looking for an enthusiastic, hard-working, and passionate graphic design intern to join our creative team in our Columbus office. An interest in fashion and retail is essential, as is a positive, can-do attitude. This is a hands-on internship that provides the opportunity to work directly with the creative team on both of RG Barry’s brands: Dearfoams and baggallini. You will work on both digital and print projects to gain a thorough understanding of the graphic design needs at a retail company. Day-to-day tasks will largely focus on executing creative concepts. The skills you hone here will be featured in a collaborative project developed throughout the 12-week duration of the internship program.
