Merritt Price, the Exhibition Design Manager at The J. Paul Getty Museum, is looking for an intern for winter quarter. This intern would start as soon as possible and work through the end of winter quarter, March 24.
Here's what he's looking for:
The Getty is in the process of rebranding Education and the Performing Arts activities. This work involves redesigning all the graphic communication materials that are published both hard copy and on-line (pdf's) for several in-house departments. Practically the student will partner with a lead designer to develop graphic design solutions that incorporate new branding guidelines that are being formulated. Work will also involve collaborations with production staff and Web staff to coordinate the delivery of designed solutions. The Design Studio is a fast paced, deadline driven, creative environment that develops of high quality design solutions.
The Design Studio that I manage at the Getty will be able to offer fully set-up MAC workstation for the successful student candidate to work from. I would prefer to have someone fill the Internship 16 ours per week. The work must be carried out at the Getty Center Design Studio. I can be flexible with the allocation of hours; at this early stage I'd say option 1 would be to do two 8 hour days per week (8:30 - 5:30 with a 1 hour lunch break), and option 2 would be four 4 hour days (8:30-12:30 or 1:30-5:30).
Working knowledge of InDesign and CS4 programs. Strong communication skills.
Send your resume, cover letter and three work samples to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, January 10.
There is also still room in Designing Experiences, the course Merritt teaches but once a year. It starts next Tuesday! For more info and to register, go here. The work that comes out of that course is exceptional and thoughtful, and a powerful addition to your portfolio.
