Internships Designed for Learning
MNHS Press Design Interns Pader (MCAD class of 2018) and Amelia (Gustavus class of 2020) got a chance to assist MNHS Press staff with editorial support and print production, and learned about the marketing and design of publications. Both also created quality spot illustrations for upcoming MNHS Press title _Closing Time_ during their spring 2019 internships. Both interns created portfolio-worthy pieces while they worked on a variety of projects for the department.
