The application period for the 2021–2022 Graphic Design & Marketing Fellowship with the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation’s Marketing and Communication Department has now closed. Follow along on our social media for the next application cycle.
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 be a mix of both graphic design and marketing, including magazine design, environmental graphics, writing and editing, social media, 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 $25,275, plus health benefits. The term may begin as soon as May 2021. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create in the same space where Frank Lloyd Wright reimagined architecture and gain insight and experience across a wide range of design concentrations.
