Intern · Kansas City, Missouri
Department Intern
Employment Type Intern
Minimum Experience Entry-level


Global Prairie is looking for a high energy and high impact individual to join our Global Prairie team as a graphic designer in our summer intern class for 2020. In this role, you’ll work across our nine offices to use your talents to help drive marketing as a force for good – all while working for a 100% employee-owned company.

This isn’t your run-of-the-mill internship. You’ll be working with our other interns and team members across the globe to work with our clients who make a positive impact on the world.  And we’ll expose you to our own global mindset by bringing all our summer interns around the globe to Kansas City during your first week to cement your intern team dynamic.

Are you sold yet? If you want to make the world a better place, expand your skillset (and your mind), and are passionate about marketing – Global Prairie is the place for you.

The Global Prairie Summer Internship Program is an 8-week program, running from June 8 through July 31, 2019.


Global Prairie is different by design. One part creative agency, one part data analytics shop and one part consulting firm, we deliver deep, innovative thinking – quickly. Because we don’t operate as a traditional agency in terms of process, structure or output, we look for team members with an entrepreneurial spirit who embrace innovation and are comfortable working with best-in-class leaders.

Working across our teams and all our nine Global Prairie offices, this individual will be responsible for a variety of tasks, such as:

  • Assisting the Global Prairie Creative & Technology team members in the development of client project needs from start to finish

  • Initial development of design concepts working in partnership with Global Prairie Designers and Directors

  • Learning about visual appearance, usability and brand continuity across client projects

    • Double check that your video is public. If you make it private, we will not be able to access or view the video.
