The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation’s Marketing and Communication Department is now accepting applications for the 2019-2020 Graphic Design Fellowship.
One graphic designer will be chosen to spend 12 months living and working at Taliesin West, Frank Lloyd Wright’s sprawling desert masterpiece in Scottsdale, Arizona. The work will include traditional graphic design, magazine design, marketing, signage, product design, and other projects related to the full spectrum of Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation programming.
Frank Lloyd Wright is America’s greatest architect, whose work was recently inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List as the first modern architecture designation in the United States. His timeless legacy continues to advance the way we build and live by inspiring new generations of innovative thinkers. This legacy thrives at Taliesin West, Wright’s winter home and desert laboratory.
Throughout the Fellowship, the selected designer will be mentored by Michael Bierut of Pentagram. The Fellowship includes room and board at Taliesin West and an annual salary of $25,000, plus health benefits. The term may begin as soon as November 2019. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create in the same space where Frank Lloyd Wright reimagined architecture and experience the community of the Taliesin Fellowship.
