Now accepting applications–Deadline: June 20, 2011
Since 1980, the Walker Art Center Design department has maintained a graphic design fellowship program that provides recent graduates (both undergrad and grad) the opportunity to work in a professional design studio environment. Selected from a highly competitive pool of applicants, fellows represent a diverse range of graphic design programs, such as Art Center College of Design, California College of Art, California Institute of the Arts, Cranbrook Academy of Art, Gerrit Rietveld Academie, 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.
Fellows are employed full-time for one year and are assigned a wide range of graphic design projects, from identities and related collateral for programs and exhibitions, to assisting the design director and designers with large-scale initiatives such as catalogues, campaigns, wayfinding systems, and websites. Fellows are involved in all aspects of the design process, from conception (the “thinking”) through delivery (the “inking”), and everything in-between. Throughout the year, the studio supports and advises our fellows and the fellow inspires and energizes our studio>>>>>
