Street Roots, an award-winning, nonprofit advocacy newspaper in Portland, is looking for graphic artists create a series of ads on themes of social and economic justice for the back page of the newspaper. (For example, the city’s shortage of housing for low-income families.) Street Roots will be going weekly in December and will need a piece of artwork for each, or nearly each, edition of the paper. This is a project multiple people will be involved with. This opportunity does not require that one person commit to every paper, but designers would ideally create several images on a theme. This position is not paid, but depending on the work, could lead to paid services.
Please send in contact information and information about yourself and interests to Joanne Zuhl, Street Roots managing editor, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please also attach several examples of your work. Ideal candidates will meet with Street Roots staff to talk about themes and artwork.
