My CMBA internship was an invaluable experience! It not only taught me the responsibilities of an in-house graphic designer, it gave me valuable work experience that I can use later on in my career. I was lucky to work with such a thoughtful, creative, and supportive staff. It was a great place to work!" -- Alex Meluch, senior, Kent State University

Design Intern – Full time May to August 2016

We are looking for a graphic design (or related) student intern (or two) to join our team for at least two months this summer. This internship opportunity will provide you with professional experiences and your projects will be exposed to thousands of people. It’s tough to say what your shining moment will be, but here is a snapshot of what we’ll be working on together.

Legal Directory

The 500-page directory offers relevant information, listings, and ads for the legal community. We invite our intern(s) to make it their “baby.” Although CMBA staff would provide direction and oversight, the intern(s) would be solely responsible for all page layouts, text and image placement, photo editing, and more.

Marketing & Branding

We have been making big changes with our marketing and branding to show our members and Cleveland all the great things we offer. Our new colors, new logos, and new website are just a few. Contribute ideas and creativity and help us continue this awesome initiative!

Events & Programs

The CMBA is known for bringing together thousands of legal professionals and the public for education, fundraising, social events, networking, and more. Help us promote these great events and programs using a wide range of visual communications!

Membership & Services

It’s all about our members! It’s up to us to keep our members coming back every year. The intern(s) will have the chance to help us come up with new and exciting ways to promote membership, in addition to our service offerings.

I really enjoyed interning at the CMBA because I was given a variety of projects that engaged my creative mind and enabled me to learn and practice new techniques. My summer internship at the CMBA helped me become a more competent graphic designer since I had the advantage of working with professionals who wanted to see me succeed." -- Kathryn Wallis, senior, Cleveland Institute of Art

The Fine Print

The intern must be proficient in Adobe InDesign, Illustrator, and Photoshop, although the internship provides the opportunity to learn more about the programs and strengthen skills. The intern must also provide his/her own Mac computer for use on-site that is equipped with Adobe Creative Suite CS6 or higher.

The internship is unpaid, but provides the intern with creative freedom over projects and the chance to gain experience working as an in-house graphic designer. The internship also is an excellent opportunity for networking and meeting people in Cleveland’s professional community.

Please send resume and portfolio samples (either a low-res multi-page PDF of 5-10 samples or a link to an online portfolio site) to Jackie Baraona at jbaraona@clemetrobar.org no later than Friday, April 22, 2016.

We can’t wait to meet you!
