eastwest-logoAre you an information designer looking for a project?

The East-West Center in Washington is currently looking for a designer to create a series of information graphics for an online and print publication. They want a series of graphics that will cover a broad range of topics from economics, politics, demographics, history and culture. They provide the data, and you provide the creativity.

The job description is a little wordy, but basically, they just want to see your portfolio and a sense of what kind of work you do. You can find more details here. It sounds like a fun opportunity.

  • I doubt Steven Few will apply! He’s just blogged about the “transparency” example from good magazine, which was suggested inspiration from the people at East West.

    Steve had this to say about that particular info graphic:

    “Until then, we’ll be papering our walls and cluttering our brains with the likes of the recent infographic below from GOOD magazine, which exhibits so many problems it’s hard to imagine where to begin critiquing it, so I’ll leave that to you. I’m going to go lie down now and cover my eyes with a warm compress.”

    Seems a common theme. What the purists want is not what the punters want.
