We want to hire a talented artist, and we wanted to find a way to work in a photo of Bob Ross.

At Fast Horse, our designers play a critical role in bringing our work to life. Whether it’s illustration, interactive design, print, video work or even a little claymation, our design team is constantly in demand. So much so, that we’ve decided to add more talent to the stable.  

Fast Horse is looking for a design intern who’s hungry, versatile and seriously creative. We know there are designers out there who know Photoshop and InDesign inside and out and we know there are artists out there who have the ability to produce truly beautiful work. We’re looking for someone who can do both.

Our client base ranges from giants of their industries such as Coca-Cola, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Minnesota, and Marvin Windows and Doors to non-profits such as the American Red Cross to a soon-to-be-famous rock band. For those brands, our designers create everything from logos, websites and print collateral to email marketing, iPhone apps and retail signage. And that’s just a sampling. Check out some of our work to see more.

If you think you have what it takes to thrive in a fast-paced, creative environment, we’d love to hear from you. Send a résumé and some work samples to info@fasthorseinc.com and we’ll be in touch. The application deadline is 5 p.m. on July 25.
