Graphic Design Apprenticeship

Gain experience concepting and executing high-level visual solutions across a wide range of mediums. Work in a team environment, utilizing all available (and occasionally not available) resources to execute brilliant creative solutions.

Job Overview

Creative cult, seeking fanatical followers. Moxie Sozo is a world-class boutique design and advertising agency, located in Boulder, Colorado. Our accounts have ranged from hip start-ups to international brands like Nike, Nickelodeon and Grupo Campari. Clients hire us to pursue unconventional ideas and push the creative boundaries beyond the traditional norms. This is a rare opportunity for a chance to learn, train and gain significant hands-on experience. Our intensive program is designed to nurture and cultivate designers and illustrators with high potential, similar to a graduate-level educational program but in a professional environment.

Not only will you get to contribute to and learn from real-world projects, but we’ve developed a full curriculum of classes/projects/exercises covering typography, packaging, branding, editorial, web/app design and everything in between.

We will invest significant time in teaching you, mentoring you and guiding you. Apprentices will be required to complete weekly and bi-weekly creative assignments to help hone skills and develop their portfolios.

Do you have a fanatical desire to produce great design? Are you looking for an environment where you can push your work and yourself? Are you a team player? Does your passion for design border on the absurd? Are you naturally caffeinated? Ridiculously positive and upbeat? If so, we may be the place for you.

Please Submit
