The Center for Urban Pedagogy
Open Call for designers!

CUP (The Center for Urban Pedagogy) is looking for talented designers, visual artists, and other creative workers to collaborate on the 2020 issues of Making Policy Public, our series of fold-out posters that use graphic design to explore and explain complex policies. We’re looking for visual thinkers with an interest in social justice and policy and who can bring unique visual solutions to the design challenges presented by complex policy issues. Together, we’ll collaborate with community organizations to take on complex issues and break them down into a simple, accessible, visual tool. Past projects have covered topics like navigating public housing, understanding Title IX, and nail salon workers’ rights, to name a few.

Making Policy Public projects are 8-10 month collaborations of CUP, community organizations and design professionals. Designers receive an honorarium of $5,000 for their participation.
Submission Guidelines for Designers:
CUP is looking for skilled designers and visual artists who are interested in working in an intensely collaborative process and in creating accessible visual explanations based on complex information. CUP is committed to good design work that's innovative. We seek designers who are excited to shape content and find creative design solutions to complex policy issues. Designers should be able to incorporate illustration, photography, information design, or other non- typographic solutions into their work. Because of the intensive nature of Making Policy Public collaborations, CUP strongly encourages designers to apply as a team. Interdisciplinary teams (designers, illustrators, photographers, etc.) are also encouraged.

Applicants must be able to attend monthly project meetings in New York City, though you don't need to be based in New York City.
