The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum is currently accepting applications for an internship in the Graphic Design department for spring 2016. Interns in this department would help with the design of exhibition graphics and printed material for an exhibition that opens in April.
Graphic design is an integral part of the image of the museum. The Graphic Design department is responsible for the design and installation of the museum’s building and exhibition signage, as well as the design and production of various printed materials, including exhibition-related ephemera (e.g., invitations, educational guides, and direct mail), informational brochures, and publications for all museum departments.
Ideal candidates are Graphic Design majors or those who have taken numerous graphic design courses. Additionally, knowledge of typography and the Adobe Creative Suite, especially InDesign is essential. Guggenheim internships are available for-credit, though are also open to student and recent graduates not receiving academic credit but who wish to pursue practical training in a museum environment.
Please send a cover letter, resume, writing sample, and design portfolio via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by December 18th.
