Tablet Magazine and its parent, Nextbook Inc., a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting Jewish literature, culture, and ideas, are seeking a part-time design intern for three months beginning September 7, 2010. The intern will get hands-on experience working with fast-paced daily content in a lively magazine environment in downtown Manhattan, and will receive a paid stipend. (See some of the amazing work our current design intern has produced here!)
Working closely with the art directors, the design intern will help design, program, and produce web and print material for Tablet Magazine and Nextbookpress.com. The intern will also attend editorial meetings and learn the various production systems used. They will gain CMS experience (especially in WordPress), and should be fluent in social media (Facebook, Twitter, Vimeo, YouTube). A working knowledge of HTML, PHP, and Photoshop is desirable. Software fluency in Flash, InDesign, and Illustrator is encouraged. Graduate students and undergraduate juniors and seniors are welcome to apply.
Design applicants should submit a cover letter, résumé, and portfolio that includes layouts, typography, or working website URLs by August 23, 2010. All application material should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
