Thanks for your question Jorge. We are a small, nonprofit, advocacy organization with a statewide focus, so all of our staff members works remotely from home offices. We interact by email, phone, and in person meetings as needed. The intern would be working with me and other staff members in same way, as there is no central office. Our design work is done both by staff (mostly me in Chicago) and by freelance designers (located in various areas). If you have any further questions, feel free to contact me directly at
