Applications are open for SLICE 2023!
Lemonly wants interns. Do you want a summer internship?
We’re looking for the zestiest young minds in the game to help us design clarity and create content (especially infographics) for some top-tier clients.
We’re looking to find three exceptional SLICErs for summer 2023: a design intern, a content intern, and a business development intern.
🎨 Design intern AND/OR animation intern – Lemonly’s design interns are great communicators and have top-tier foundational design skills, especially illustration. Day-to-day, our design/animation intern will create engaging visuals (from infographics to social content and more) in a variety of styles for clients and for Lemonly’s own channels.
✏️ Content intern – Wordsmiths welcome! The Lemonly content intern will write everything from blog posts to infographic copy and email newsletters. If you have near-perfect grammar and punctuation skills and a solid grasp of how to write in multiple brand voices, you’re in the right place.
💼 Business development intern – Wanna woo some Lemonly clients? Our biz dev intern will help the sales and account team attract new prospective clients and build up relationships with existing clients.
If you have experience in or excitement about any of the following, you’re in the right place:
• Graphic design
• Copywriting/content writing
• Account service/client relations
• Project management

A LITTLE BIT
Hello! We’re Lemonly, an 11-year-old graphic design and visual content agency in Sioux Falls, SD. Infographics are our specialty — whether they’re static, animated, interactive, or otherwise — and we bring an infographic eye to everything we produce.
Thanks to our laser focus on visual stories and our truly talented team, we get to work with exciting clients around the world, like:
We love being known for doing incredible work for exceptional clients, but we also want to be known as the best place to work in the Midwest. Armed with and inspired by our core values of Integrity, Collaboration, and Adventure, we try to be better every day.
WHY WE HAVE AN INTERNSHIP PROGRAM
Maybe the real internship is the friends we make along the way.
But alongside that, we love getting fresh perspectives from a new crop of creative minds each summer and sharing our own wisdom at the same time.
The Lemonheads have experience in:
Graphic design, animation, photography, videography, copywriting, research, project management, sales, client relations, client soothing, content strategy, marketing, entrepreneurship, appearing on game shows, ballet, mixology, cross-stitching, tabletop games, boondoggle braiding, dog-rearing, and MORE!!!
Fun Fact: 7 out of 19 full-time Lemonheads were once SLICE interns. (And 19 out of 19 are cool and smart and fun to be around.)

✏️ Your resumé
📩 A cover letter (Tell us about your sweet skills and how you’d put them to use at Lemonly.)
🔗 A link to your creative portfolio, if you’ve got one, AND…
✨ Your response to the following prompt ✨
What do you “geek out” about? Are you really into geocaching? Have you watched multiple documentaries about the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire of 1911? Do you build LEGO® creations most mortals could never imagine? Whatever your niche interest is, we want to hear a bit about it and get to know you better.
Using whatever communication tools you prefer (words, illustration, animation, a video of yourself, some combination of those things, or something else entirely), tell us about your most obscure interest and why it fascinates you so much.
❗❗❗ APPLICATION DEADLINE: Monday, February 6th, 2023 (at 12:00pm CT if you want to be specific about it)
Do interns have to work in Sioux Falls during the internship? If at all possible, yes. We’re excited to have interns join us at our cool new HQ in downtown Sioux Falls this summer.
What if I don’t live in Sioux Falls? We won’t throw out your application if it’s not possible for you to be in town at all this summer, but our interns typically get more out of the experience if they can interact with the Lemonheads in the office. Past interns have commuted to Sioux Falls from as far as Vermillion or Brookings. Others stay with friends or family in town for the summer or find short-term housing.
Do interns get paid? Yes! We offer hourly pay.
How many hours per week do interns work? Interns are on the clock for 32 hours/week, usually Monday–Thursday.
Can I use this to fill my internship requirement for college? Of course! Just give us the appropriate paperwork to fill out at the beginning or end of the summer.
How long is the internship? Our SLICE interns will start in late May and work with us until mid-/late August.
Do I still have to be in college to be an intern? Nope! We’ve had plenty of recent graduates be interns, too.
Can I apply as a freshman or sophomore? You can definitely apply. We typically select interns with a bit more experience in their major. Most often, we hire juniors going into their senior year or recent graduates.
Email Molly, one of our awesome internship coordinators! She’ll be happy to answer any other questions you have. Otherwise, you can always reach out to us on social media or fill out the contact form on our website.
