FEEST youth leaders are creating a multimedia counter-marketing campaign against the junk food advertising they see on the daily as working class youth of color. The campaign aims to promote healthy eating amongst high school youth in White Center and Delridge, while simultaneously calling out the fast food industry’s role in creating our inequitable food system. We believe access to healthy, culturally relevant food is intrinsically linked to race, class and your built environment.
We’re looking for a dynamic designer/artist with a strong social justice lens, one that collaborates well with youth, and has a good eye towards designing images related to: healthy food, the industrialization of fast food, building community through the act of cooking and eating together, and vibrant youth of color leadership.You must be available for at least two in-person Monday afternoon meetings with FEEST youth at our office in White Center.
This role starts as soon as possible and is open until filled. Compensation is $70-85/hour, DOE. You will be working closely with youth and staff to develop graphics and design esthetics for three taglines that the youth have developed.
Send 3-4 examples of work (featuring/related to: food justice, youth, comics, political satire, etc) and a short description about why you’re interested in working with us, and estimated timeline with hours to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line: “Graphic Designer – Your Full Name”. Priority will be given to those received before Feb. 4 2016.
