YM Inc.

Creative Fashion Graphic Design (Apparel) Intern

Do you have a passion for fast fashion? Have you always seen yourself working with a successful retail Company and seeing your creative designs being worn? YM Inc. is home to multiple fashion brands you know and love. Why join us? Because what we do is really cool!


Have you always dreamed about learning more about the fashion industry and seeing your creative designs come to life?  Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be walking down the street and seeing someone wearing a piece of clothing with an image you created?  Did you ever want to walk into a store anywhere in Canada or the USA and see your work for sale in a retail store?

At YM Inc, we provide a wealth of opportunities whether it is a first job or a lifelong profession. When we hire someone, we want to keep them for as long as we can. Therefore, promoting from within is part of our culture. In addition, we offer rewarding challenges in a fast-paced and unique environment within the ever-changing curve of fashion retail. On top of that, you get to enjoy benefits like continuous hands-on training and learning programs and engaging corporate events as well as a fantastic employee discount.


As a Graphic Design Intern, you will be working alongside other Graphic Designers and Buyers to work on the upcoming collections for our stores.

In this role you will:

  • Utilize your education in different situations:
    • Creating off screen prints for t-shirts
    • Creating all over prints
    • Create embellishments and applique art work
    • Learn about trends and how to translate those trends into works of art for fabric
    • Learn how to measure and adjust art work and understand how to fit a garment
    • Learn about packaging as well as different ways merchandise can be packaged
  • Be creative, we want you to come up with ideas as well!


  • Currently attending one of the awesome post-secondary schools and enrolled in a relevant Graphic Design program
  • Have worked in a retail setting before, and have a basic understanding of what the mass market might find appealing
  • Everyone knows how to use MS Office these days, but if you are an Photoshop, Illustrator and Adobe InDesign wiz… Perfect!

Our best Graphic Design Interns have outstanding organizational skills, are creative and love drawing and illustrating.

Passion, initiative and a relentless desire to keep learning are all must-haves when we are looking for new talent. Our team is as diverse as the merchandise we carry. We strive to find people who are both team players and top performers, eager to grow within the Company and able to reach new heights together with us.


At YM Inc, we are always first with fashion. We believe that everyone should have access to clothing they love to wear. We make it our mission to not only provide the latest styles and trends, but to make them affordable. Across all our brands, we provide value for today’s trends for kids, teens and adults. We are one of North America’s leading apparel retailers operating over 700 stores across Canada and the United States under the following banners: Stitches, Urban Planet, Urban Behavior, Sirens, Urban Kids, West49, Amnesia, Suzy Shier, Bluenotes, Mandee, and Charlotte Russe. By developing the best shopping experience and offering the best retail brands and prices, we are well positioned to continue our success, now and in the future. The only thing missing is you!
