Make Music New York, a unique, free outdoor celebration called “the largest music event ever to grace Gotham” (Metro New York), is looking for a graphic design intern to create online and print materials for the 2010 festival.
Over the last three years, Parsons students have designed the festival’s logo, websites, posters, and advertisements, which have appeared in Time Out New York, Metro New York, amNewYork, and Filter Magazine. This year’s graphic design intern will lay out brochures and fliers, produce advertisements, and redesign our website. The designer will work with the festival’s administration, a website programmer, and 3-4 concert producers throughout the city.
Time commitment will average 12 hours / month. Looking for someone to start immediately, through June 2010.
If interested, send work samples to Parsons Illustration Internship Coordinator Caty Bartholomew via email.
Illustration Alum Evan Spiridellis passed along this exciting news about the success of JibJab, a site he co-created with his brother, Gregg.
Four years ago we launched ‘This Land’ which, after almost 5 years of hard work, brought us overnight recognition. Last night we had the honor of world premiering our 2008 election parody on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno! That was our 12th premiere on the show in the past 4 years and after the west coast airing of the show the video went live on our newly remodeled website. We have been working hard for the past 9 months redesigning and rebuilding JibJab.com to better reflect who we are as a studio and a company and I couldn’t be happier with the results.
A final bit of news is that the new video contains a Starring You!® component which enables you to cast yourself, friend or family member in the grand finale. Since we launched Starring You! less than a year ago our audience has created over 12 MILLION heads (which is larger than the population of our home state, New Jersey!)
So, if you have a few minutes please swing by http://jibjab.com and, if you like what we’ve created, share it with your friends. Or better yet put your friends IN it and then share it!
Bonus: Here’s a short video about JibJab’s creation.
Way to go Evan and Gregg–keep up the exciting work!
