Junior Designer Intern – Cut.com

How many Youtube channels do you know that get featured by The Wall Street Journal and TMZ, Marie Claire and Playboy, Hightimes and TED? Cut is a deconstructed entertainment channel that targets self-reflective explorers of curious social realities. The kind of people hungry for content that respects them as smart and isn’t interested in stories that pander or prescribe to them. Sitting at the intersection of media sites like Buzzfeed and Vice, Cut aspires to create the kind of work that is both viral and smart, highly produced and scalable, mainstream and cool. We’re looking for innovative creators and storytellers to join our team.

The Position:

As a Junior Designer, your day-to-day routine is a combination of day-to-day production and creative tasks. Production tasks are pre-structured, and include creating and managing video thumbnails, building presentation decks, and website edits. Creative tasks are more project-specific, and include concept development, asset creation, and motion design. You will be mentored by a senior designer who will provide creative direction and feedback.

As a Junior Designer for Cut, you have:

  • Experience with Adobe Creative Suite
  • Motion graphics experience
  • Strong typographic knowledge
  • Skillset to create vector & hand illustrated assets
  • Knowledge of color correction/grading and photo manipulation a plus
  • Team-oriented individual who can collaborate with directors, producers and editors
  • Exceptional organizational skills
  • Excellent time management skills

Upon joining Cut here’s how success will be determined for you:

  • Keep files organized and up-to-date
  • Execute multiple projects and meet deadlines
  • Ability to take direction and constructive criticism
  • Professionalism

The truth is, a lot of this could change and you have to be okay living in ambiguity. What won’t change is that what we value is what you can provide in terms of your eagerness to deliver and grow yourself, your team, and ultimately our business. Sound exciting? Then we’re excited to speak to you.
