Graphic Design Internship
A+ (You Get An A Plus) is looking for a Graphic Design Intern for Spring/Summer 2019, with a possibility to extend. Based in New York City, this person will assist the Founder and the team in streamlining internal and external visual projects.
A+ (You Get An A Plus) is based in NYC and is a boutique visual and strategic consulting firm, with clients spanning the creative industries. We make niche into big, and give back corporate the “bespoke-factor” that it has lost. We help build brands from soup-to-nuts, which includes the development of full visual brands (branding, design, marketing, web) and infrastructure/foundational planning. Essentially, we aid companies by making them fully functional – both on the front end (visually), and the back-end (operationally.) Whether it be visual and/or experiential, we create, develop, and execute innovative brand strategies, unforgettable + engaging moments and events, facilitate partnerships and collaborations, develop prudent long-term growth timelines, and execute results-driven solutions for our clients. Essentially, we bridge the gap between the business and the creative, so our clients can scale for success.
