It's that time again — we're searching for two summer interns to help us out with content creation, graphic design and branding projects for our cannabis clients and Brand Joint projects! Each semester, Brand Joint (and our sister company Peppermill Projects), seeks out summer interns who are outgoing, passionate about design, and looking for real-world branding experience.

This year we are seeking out two interns: a Graphic Designer and Copywriter. As a Brand Joint intern, you’ll learn the ins and outs of working at a full-service cannabis branding studio. You’ll work alongside our design and writing teams, sit in on brainstorming meetings, help our team come up with creative solutions, and create compelling content for our clients. You'll build your portfolio and have fun while doing it!
