Our Risograph Printshop is looking for Interns.

Interns will be working closely with the founder Cem Kocyildirim on different aspects of a small printshop. We are looking for creative and entrepreneurial people who have experience in printmaking and/or graphic design. Research skills is a must.

From our founder Cem Kocyildirim:

I started my printshop after an amazing internship at Lower East Side Printshop which gave me valuable experience on publishing art work, working in collaboration with artists, and galleries. This internship allowed me to start my own risograph printshop 3 years ago and I hope to give back to the community by teaching the inner workings of a printshop.
