The Public Theater is seeking a part-time Graphics assistant to join our small in-house team of designers. Must be available 2-3 days a week. Position is available NOW, through December, with potential to extend through spring.
The Public is a nonprofit theater based on the principle that culture belongs to everyone and artists are a force for change. We have a very diverse range of programming that is radical at the center and speaks to the important issues of today. Our visual branding was established by the legendary Paula Scher of Pentagram, who we continue to work closely with. It is a bold, typography-driven identity that is a lot of fun to work with.
The Public’s Graphics Department is responsible for creating everything that visually represents The Public, including but not limited to: posters, programs, postcards, stationery, web content, e-blasts, animations, lobby projection graphics, flyers, advertisements, merchandise, signage, etc.
Candidates should not only be very skilled with typography, but have a passion for making a statement with it (this is the essence of our identity). Must be a hard-working self-starter who will innovate and push for new solutions. Interest in Shakespeare a plus.
Please send resume, cover letter and website/portfolio to email@example.com
Intern can expect to learn
Job candidate: You can expect to learn what it’s like to work on an in-house team alongside artists who are very passionate about the mission of the organization. It is a unique opportunity to create art for art. You will learn how to avoid cliches and create meaningful work that takes risks and has a purpose. You can also expect to see some world-class theater (but NO we can’t get you tickets to Hamilton).
