Frank Lloyd Wright is America’s greatest architect, and his visionary legacy lives on at Taliesin West. Wright’s sprawling desert masterpiece, located in Scottsdale, Arizona, is an environment like no other.
A utopian world unto itself, Taliesin West is simple, elegant, and perfectly in harmony with the surrounding Southwestern landscape. It’s bustling, yet serene. Prehistoric, yet modern. Familiar, but exotic. Incomparable inspiration can be found everywhere you turn.
One designer will be chosen to spend 12 months living and working at this extraordinary place. The work will include traditional graphic design, magazine design, marketing, signage, product design, and other projects related to the full spectrum of Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation programming.
Throughout the Fellowship, the selected designer will be mentored by Michael Bierut of Pentagram (pentagram.com). The Fellowship includes room and board at Taliesin West and an annual salary of $20,000, plus health benefits. The term may begin as soon as October 2017. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create in the same space where Frank Lloyd Wright reimagined architecture.
