|Company Name:||THE EXPERIMENT|
|Description:||We are looking for an intern motivated by the opportunity to learn about the book publishing business from the unique perspective of an independent trade publishing company. Candidates are asked to (ideally) commit to up to three full days (about 24 hours total) a week over the course of the semester. Work hours are flexible between 9:30 and 6:30, Monday through Friday.
Our design internship is a chance to learn about all aspects of both print and digital book publishing in a small, friendly environment. We offer a hospitable, low-stress work environment, and great opportunities to gain hands-on publishing experience and contacts in the industry as well as an in-depth understanding of the publishing process, as practiced by an established independently owned and run publisher.
Our intern will work closely with the art director and designer. Interns will get the chance to gain experience and develop skills designing promotional materials such as sell sheets, postcards, event signage, and web banners, as well as help with text corrections on interiors of books, and doing photo research.

|Requirements:||Highly desirable requirements are a firm grasp of Mac platform, Adobe InDesign, Photoshop, and font management software. Must be detail-oriented, have the ability to take direction and multitask, and willing to help out in all aspects of the art department.
