Job Description

Fred&Co. is a branding and graphic design studio based in Minneapolis! We see our interns as an important part of the team, working on real projects with real deadlines, with wiggle room to make mistakes, learn, and kick butt! You will execute on both internal projects and client work, collaborating primarily with our founder Molly and occasionally with our contractors assigned to different client projects. This is an opportunity to not only expand your portfolio projects you’re excited about, but learn how the heck a small design business works!

Where is this internship located?

We are based in Minneapolis but will be working remotely no matter where you call home!

If you happen to be in the Twin Cities, we can plan co-working days if you’re interested (no pressure though if you’d rather be remote the whole time!) We would also love to have you on-set for photoshoots if you are in town and interested.

Will I get a full-time job at the end of this?

We aren’t taking on any full-time employees at the moment, but if you love working with us, we would love to chat about how we can either extend the internship, or work with you on a project-by-project basis.

What is the schedule like?

We would figure out specific days/times that you’re available to be online with us so we can all have a gameplan! Our work hours are Monday-Thursday, 10am-4pm CST.
