Have a year to spend in Minneapolis and get in real good with the Walker Art Center? Now’s your chance, as our pals over in the design department over there where kind enough to drop us a line letting us know that they’ve just started accepting applications for the 2008/2009 Walker Art Center Design Fellowship. It’s a year-long, paid program where you get to work with their fantastic design group, creating identities for exhibitions, building whole campaigns and working on their print projects. It’s a pretty incredible opportunity, should you be selected, so why not just give it a shot? Here’s a bit about the legacy of the thing:
Since 1980, the Walker Art Center Design department has maintained a graphic design fellowship program that provides recent graduates the opportunity to work in a professional design studio environment. Selected from a highly competitive pool of applicants, fellows represent a diverse range of graphic design programs, such as Art Center College of Design, California College of Art, California Institute of the Arts, Cranbrook Academy of Art, Eastern Michigan University, Minneapolis College of Art and Design, NC State University, Rhode Island School of Design, Royal College of Art, Werkplaats Typografie, and Yale University, among many others.
