For immediate release: November 15, 2021
The Graphic Design area of the Art Department at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is seeking a tenure-track Assistant Professor to work in a fertile environment for aesthetic and critical engagement and build the future of the graphic design program.
As a medium that combines art and technology, Graphic Design emphasizes the process of visual communication of ideas and information with attention to aesthetic considerations, working process, presentation, craftsmanship, and methods through illustrations, photographs, pattern, line, shape, texture, and type to solve problems and reach audiences. Course work in computer typesetting introduces historical and visual aspects of formal typography and serve to facilitate experimentation with the communicative properties of type. Practical study in this area involves the design and production of books, broadsides, brochures, and posters; the development and application of logotypes and design formats; and utilizing the facilities of letterpress, computer technologies, and graphic reproduction techniques. Graphic design is art with a purpose.
Applications open until December 30, 2021, 11:55pm or until filled.
