What we’re looking for

The region’s next great designer. If you eat, sleep, and breathe design, then this is the place for you. We’re looking for someone who does more than meet the basic requirements of a school assignment; someone who has an equally strong passion for high-level design thinking and finely honed craft; someone who cares deeply about solving a wicked problem, but cares just as much about a properly kerned pair of letters. Applicants must have completed at least three years of a bachelor’s degree, or one year of an associate’s degree, by June 2017.

Who we are

Oxide Design Co. is a branding and design firm creating award-winning work for a local and national client base (including Zipline Brewing Co., Mula Mexican Kitchen, Baxter Auto, Film Streams, and Metro Transit). See a full range of our work at oxidedesign.com, and read the latest happenings around the office in our News.

What it is

A 10-hours-a-week paid internship for the months of June, July, and August (start and end dates are negotiable).

Why it’ll be awesome

Work on a small team of some of Omaha’s most passionate creatives bringing great solutions to life in all media. Cool midtown office, free soda (pick your poison), and plenty of space to pile your nerdy design artifacts. You’ll also get to work with the whole team from the start of projects, providing input and collaboration along the way, instead of being shoved in a dark broom closet like some trained production monkey.

Added bonus: work in the heart of the Blackstone District, surrounded by great food, shopping, and night life!

Don’t believe us? Just read what former interns have to say about their experience at Oxide: Josh Schwieger (who, by the way, now works at Oxide), Craig Hughes, Chris Kelly, Adam Casey, Jeffrey Dennis, Kelsey Janda (in an epic, three-part series), Ryan Aquilino, Julie Gates, and Michael Stevens.

How you apply

Please email your resume and samples of your design work (or a link to your online portfolio) to internship@oxidedesign.com by Tuesday 28 Feb 2017. A selection for the position will be made by Friday 17 Mar 2017.
