Written by:


Screen Shot 2015-08-25 at 12.47.54 PMNew art and academic journal called SUNU: Journal of African Affairs, Critical Thought + Aesthetics, is seeking a Communications Design student, specializing in graphic design to assist the team in putting together a clean, minimal, elegant pitch deck that is in line with the brand identity.

The student will meet with the journal’s Editor and Managing Director occasionally at our work space in Flatiron (snacks/coffee will be on us each time). There will be regular communication through email and/or Skype.

This is a great opportunity for students looking to build their portfolio. This opportunity is also perfect for those who have a clean, minimal design aesthetic and/or those who have a particular interest in Africa.

Student will be compensated.

All interested candidates should contact with portfolio or links to their work, with the subject: SUNU Graphic Design

About the Journal:

S U N U is a Wolof word meaning “our.” It represents the collective and togetherness.

SUNU: Journal of African Affairs, Critical Thought + Aesthetics is produced by a collective of young intellectuals, activists and artists who, through literary work, research papers and compelling visuals, engage critically African issues and topics at continental, regional, national and international levels. It will delve beneath the surface to identify theories, practices and representations at the nexus of (but not limited to) human rights, development, visual culture, post-colonial ideologies, literature, history, socio-economic conditions, social movements, cultural theories and practices.

SUNU’s mission is to amplify the youth voice and contribute to strengthening their collective consciousness in critical engagement with African affairs, and aesthetics.
