Art Intern (unpaid internship)
FP offers individuals with interest in print and web graphic design the opportunity to learn about and participate in the design and production of both the bimonthly print publication and ForeignPolicy.com.
During this internship, tasks may include assisting with photo research as well as on the design of basic magazine layouts, house ads, promotional pieces, graphics for print and web, web advertisements, and event collateral. Interns will spend 3-4 months working in our office in Washington, DC. Twenty hours a week is preferred, and a flexible schedule can be arranged. Internships are unpaid.
The ideal candidate will be organized, self-motivated, independent and efficient. Design work will be completed predominately in Adobe InDesign, Photoshop, and Illustrator, so experience with these programs is required. A good eye for photography and an interest in international affairs is a plus. Flexibility regarding work schedule during publication deadlines is appreciated.
Please e-mail résumé, cover letter, and a well-edited selection of relevant print and/or web design samples to Erin Aulov, Deputy Art Director: erin.aulov[at]foreignpolicy.com
Applicants should be prepared to attend an in-person interview and present a portfolio. If you have additional questions, contact Erin Aulov by e-mail. No phone calls, please.
Founded in 1970 by Samuel Huntington and Warren Demian Manshel, and now published by the Slate Group, a division of Washingtonpost.Newsweek Interactive, LLC, in Washington, D.C., FOREIGN POLICY is the premier, award-winning magazine of global politics, economics, and ideas. Our mission is to explain how the world works-in particular, how the process of globalization is reshaping nations, institutions, cultures, and, more fundamentally, our daily lives. FP is a 2010, 2006, and 2005 nominee and a 2009, 2007, and 2003 winner of the National Magazine Award for General Excellence. The magazine's readers include some of the most influential leaders in business, government, and other professional arenas throughout the U.S. and more than 160 other countries.
In January 2009, ForeignPolicy.com was relaunched as a vibrant, daily online magazine. Rather than merely complementing the print edition, the site stands on its own as one of the Web's premier destinations for international news and opinion. FP has recruited some of the sharpest writers in international politics to look beyond the day's headlines to uncover overlooked stories and unique angles. Passport, the award-winning blog by FP's editors, has been joined by a host of new bloggers, including Tom Ricks, Stephen Walt, Marc Lynch, and Daniel Drezner.
