Winter Graphic Design Internship

Looking for Chicago graphic design internships? Walker Sands Communications is looking for an energetic detail-oriented person to serve as a graphic design intern for a 12-week internship at our Chicago office.


We are seeking a graphic design intern for our downtown Chicago office located in the Loop. We are looking for someone with some design experience who is looking for a new and exciting challenge!

A typical day involves designing websites, landing pages, calls-to-action, logos, brochures, direct mail pieces, PowerPoint presentations, infographics or letterheads.
