New America, a leading nonprofit, nonpartisan public policy institute, is seeking a paid graphic design and data visualization intern, starting in January 2019.
The graphic design and data visualization intern will assist our communications and design team in transforming New America’s policy research into print materials, data visualizations, infographics, illustrations, and social media collateral. We are looking for candidates who can help to conceptualize design content, execute design projects, and assist with the entire production process. Strong attention to detail is important in this role.
An academic background in policy is not required, but this is an ideal role for the aspiring designer with interest in current affairs, social change, public policy, and journalism.
Submit a cover letter, resume, and PDF or web portfolio by November 16. We are looking for evidence of how you can communicate complex ideas in straightforward, intuitive ways. We are especially interested in any data visualizations, charts, videos, or infographics you may have produced. Candidates without work samples will not be considered.
