Now accepting applications for the Walker Design & New Media Fellowship–Deadline: May 5, 2013
Take our new T.B.W. Creative Personality Test to see your geometric relationship with the “collective creative unconsciousness.”
This year we are inaugurating our first Design & New Media fellowship. We are searching for designers who are comfortable and adept at developing projects for both print and screen and can move fluidly between media. Ideal candidates will be firmly grounded in visual design principles and the print design process with demonstrated experience in interaction design and front-end development. In addition to print projects such as exhibition identities and collateral materials, this year’s fellow will be focusing on select projects such as design updates to the Walker website, online publishing initiatives, and our first e-publishing project. The fellow will join an accomplished team of professionals known for creating industry-leading work. Immersed in the Design, Editorial, and New Media departments, fellows gain a deeper understanding of design; work on projects with rich, interesting content; and are expected to produce work to the highest standards of design excellence. Fellows are employed full-time and are involved in all aspects of the design process, including client meetings and presentations through production and development.
Selected from a highly competitive pool of applicants, fellows come from graphic design programs throughout the United States and abroad. Fellows represent a diverse range of design programs, such as Art Center College of Design, California College of Art, California Institute of the Arts, Cranbrook Academy of Art, Eastern Michigan University, Minneapolis College of Art and Design, NC State University, Rhode Island School of Design, Royal College of Art, Werkplaats Typografie, and Yale University, among many others.
