Graphic Design Intern

 

LET’S TALK ABOUT YOU

You believe that good public policy leads to better lives. You know that an engaged an informed citizenry was as important in the 1700’s as it is today. And you understand that the freedom movement needs innovative programming to appeal to more than just the wonks.

Reclaim New York is looking for someone like you. We seek a Graphic Design Intern that is interested in learning about the core processes of a non-profit marketing effort. The internship requires a minimum of 20 hours per week at Reclaim headquarters. Because of a dumb New York law that restricts freedom – you must be a degree-seeking student for this position.

You should have ridiculously strong organization abilities. You should be a rock star at layout design, working in Adobe InDesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator. You must be creative. Your goal is to turn policy issues and daily news stories into beautiful designs for print and web. Make that new tax or personal liberty overreach by the government into content people want to engage with.

WHO WE ARE

Since our public launch in 2015, Reclaim has grown quickly across the state. Through a network of citizen owners, Reclaim is helping families understand the impact New York’s affordability crisis has on your bottom line. Through the New York Transparency Project we’re training local citizens to increase transparency and accountability in local governments. With your support we’ll pair strong programming with an even stronger marketing operation.
