Graphic reporters create graphics for different sections at the Daily Bruin. These graphics run in print and online editions. Although graphics range from simple charts to full-page standalones, all graphics provide a visually compelling layer to the paper. As a graphics intern, you will learn the basics of Adobe Illustrator, collaborate with different departments, and produce art from data. We welcome any and all applicants from all majors and levels of experience.
