Here are the details for our Summer 2021 internship 

Lemonly wants interns. Do you want an 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. If you have experience in/excitement about any of the following, you’re in the right place:

• Graphic design

• Copywriting

• Animation

• Web development

• PR/marketing strategy

• Account service

• Project management

You probably have some questions. Like, what does Lemonly do? What kind of interns are we looking for? What should your application contain? Fear not! This landing page has many more words! Read on!


Hello! We’re Lemonly, a 9-year-old content and design shop 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 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. Better creators. Better coworkers. Better people.




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, development, photography, copywriting, research, information architecture, project management, sales, client relations, content strategy, marketing, entrepreneurship, clogging, kayaking, ballet, mixology, cross-stitching, boondoggle braiding, houseplant maintenance, dog-rearing, and MORE!!!

Fun Fact: 8 out of 16 full-time Lemonheads were once SLICE interns.

Do interns have to work in Sioux Falls during the internship? Not knowing exactly what the summer will bring, we hope to still be able to offer some in-office experience for our interns. So, for now, we’re planning on a hybrid remote/in-office internship.

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. (We can assist with that, if needed!)

Do interns get paid? Yes! We offer a monthly stipend to our interns.

How many hours per week do interns work? Interns start out at 32 hours/week, usually Monday–Thursday, and have the potential to grow into 40 hours/week.

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.

Do I need to bring my own laptop? Interns will need their own laptops. We’ve got the rest covered. Yay for office snacks!

How long is the internship? Our SLICE interns will start approximately Monday, May 17th and work with us until Friday, August 13th. 

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 certainly apply, but 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.
