Globe Internship

Unpaid/ Internship/ Summer

Globe studio interns will learn the basics of letterpress and screen printing, or, if already proficient, improve their skills
in these crafts by working on internal and external projects. (Recent Globe projects have included posters for Sanrio for the first-ever Hello Kitty Con and the “Pump Me Up” exhibition at the Corcoran Gallery of Art.) Interns will learn more about the collection by proofing cuts and type to help with archiving those items. Interns will help to keep the letterpress studio and
Globe shop in the 1515 building organized and ready for printing and other projects, and will safeguard the collection and tools in the letterpress studio by monitoring the studio’s use. Interns will work to develop a stronger appreciation for and knowledge of Globe through branding, social media, design projects, and community outreach, both at MICA and in the broader community.

This is a position for an ambitious designer who loves to explore—rejects why something can’t be done, and offers up ideas for how it can. If you put as much energy into crafting a front of book chart as you do designing a feature, you may be the perfect fit. We’re looking for someone with a natural passion to better any given project—who has a New York publications work ethic, but is ready for the slower pace of Washington, DC living. Responsibilities include designing departments and features for AARP The Magazine and AARP Bulletin (both print and tablet), creating infographics, charts, collaborating with our photo team and assigning illustrations.
