2014 - 15 Graphic Designer Fellowship   05.06.14

SPACES is extending our mission of being "the public forum for artists who explore and experiment" to graphic designers, through our SPACES Graphic Designer Fellowship.

We will use our quarterly Field Guide publication and other print and web-based collateral to showcase emerging talent in graphic design and increase the number of cultural producers who participate in our programs each year. Those selected will be able to leave their creative mark on SPACES' graphic design projects that promote the transformational work we support through our main programs and upcoming capital campaign.

Fellows will be involved in all aspects of the design process, including brainstorming, developing the graphic identities for projects, and review process, and will serve a crucial role in the development of the SPACES aesthetic.

REQUIREMENTS
The Fellow will be asked to ensure that the SPACES brand identity remains consistent, while including playful elements that are appropriate to the organization's ethos.

The Fellow will be asked to find exciting design strategies within an established template for our quarterly 16-page "Field Guide" booklet and apply creativity to the development of a design for some or all of the following: Annual Appeal (rack card), Benefit (4 panel brochure), Monster Drawing Rally (post card), Season Pass/Quarter Art mailers (3 panel brochure), and/or graphics for web.

The design/ownership/copyright and original source (Illustrator, InDesign, Photoshop) files must remain the property of SPACES, and all work created as part of this Fellowship will be the shared property of SPACES-for indefinite use-and the Fellow.

The Fellow will have a knowledge of standard protocols to prepare all documents for the printing process.

The functional requirements of the Fellowship opportunity may vary in length, depending onthe scope of the project.

BENEFITS
Work on Field Guides garners a $600 honorarium. Fellows will receive a set honorarium for production of additional materials, which varies from project to project.

Fellows will receive portfolio development; their work will be highlighted on the SPACES blog and through our social media platforms. On printed matter and web-based projects, Fellows will receive design credit.

HOW TO APPLY
Please submit the following in one .pdf file:
-Statement that describes your interest in this opportunity and what you could bring to the SPACES visual identity;
-Current CV or résumé with URL listed;
-Three professional references (please include contact information);
-3 to 5 examples of relevant graphic design work.

This is an ongoing open call. Please submit all materials and inquiries to contact@SPACESgallery.org.
