We are getting bigger!

Reka – our awesome summer intern – has officially been our awesome employee for a while now and we’re ready to grow again. This time we are seeking a graphic designer and marketing guru to join our team as an intern with the possibility of regular employment at the completion of the internship.

So – who do you know who wants to hang out with us and learn a whole lot in the process? Reka tells people we are the best bosses in the world and brags to her friends who are stuck with stodgy bosses doing boring work about her job. I think she probably exaggerates a touch, but we’re a fun crew: lots of exciting projects happening, studio cats to help with the work, and a super fun and easy going work environment. Lots of work to do of course, but we’re not interested in micromanaging in the process, you know?
