Become a Designer for Science for the People magazine

Science for the People is seeking graphic designers to help with the design and layout of our print edition. Science for the People is working toward paying all of our contributors, and we’re looking for designers willing to contribute your abilities to the cause. We hope that the opportunity to work and build relationships with SftP’s publications team, and create a magazine read by thousands, is enticing.

Required skills:

  • experience with editorial/layout design
  • ability to create production-ready artwork
  • proficiency with InDesign CC (latest version)
  • must have Adobe CC software
  • passion for typography
  • interest in science activism

Additional skills desired:

  • illustration
  • artwork
  • photography

You will be working with a basic structure/templates for articles and features, but designers are encouraged to experiment creatively within given parameters.

 

Join the SftP Mapping Collective

We’ve been writing about science’s deep connection to oppressive forces—as a means for colonization, for imperializing exploration, for racist agendas and classist methods, but what does that look like? What does resistance to these oppressive forces look like? We are putting out a call for people interested in place, geography, or geographic information systems (GIS) and want to help build up Science for the People’s mapping team. If you have skills or enthusiasm for creating maps, have access to data, or ideas and questions, reach out! Our first project will be included in SftP‘s third issue, “Science Under Occupation.”
