Graphic design is a diverse field of work, encompassing web design, advertising, clothing, and much more. The work of graphic designers is all around us, and Idealist has hundreds of opportunities available for people looking to create the next big thing. Here are a few to explore:



Internships are a great option for people looking for more experience in the design field.

  • If you’d like to design projects that will be used across the United States, intern with the Spark Program in Philadelphia, which provides apprenticeships to youth in under-served communities. Work in Washington, DC for the Red Cross or get your feet wet in the art world at the Highwood Theatre in Silver Springs, MD.

Volunteer Opportunities

Finally, if you’re a graphic designer that just wants to share your skills with others, check out some of the volunteer opportunities we have on the site.

Whether you need to build up your portfolio or just want to transfer your skills to the social impact sector, Idealist offers hundreds of graphic design opportunities every month. So get to work and make the world a better and more beautiful place!
