2015 Internship Program

We are proud to introduce our Summer Internship program for two to three Photography, Graphic Design, Book Arts, Website Design, New Media (or related) students. We’re working on some exciting projects here at Booksmart Studio related to traditional and contemporary; book arts & digital printing fields, and feel it would be a great opportunity to help hone some young, ambitious talent in a great direction while working on both experimental and production level projects.

• Do not apply if you can’t work from the Rochester, NY office. • This is an onsite position only. • This is an unpaid internship.


• Exciting Industry: Be apart of the rapidly changing inkjet printing industry and learn on every printer currently used in fine art printing. All printers are housed within our 9,600 square foot studio. • Insight & Experience: Few things you learn in school will prepare you for the working world (sorry parents). Our real world development, production and working environment is a great place to become a well rounded digital artist or digital printmaker, no matter what your discipline. • Intern-to-Hire Potential: Proven candidates may be offered full-time positions on graduation.


Applicants will be a part of a variety of different projects, technologies and services during their tenure at Booksmart Studio. The Summer Internship also consists of a group project, where Interns working together are guided through a project by our team. The project will be conceptualized, designed, and developed all through our internal processes, a great hands-on experience for anyone looking to work in this industry on graduation.

Qualifications / Skills:

• Applicants must be in one form or another, a talented digital artist/designer. Ideally the candidate is proficient in Adobe Photoshop™ and has some Adobe InDesign™ experience, but if you are talented in any other digital workflow techniques or book art – we can help bridge the gap.

• Excellent written and spoken English.

Deadline: March 15th, 2015
