Lacuna: Artists/Graphic designers

We are looking for artists and graphic designers to produce clear, eye-catching images that support our stories. For stories without supporting photography we call on artists and designers to produce creative images to sit alongside the text. The subject matter is not always easy to illustrate so we’re looking for bright ideas and imagination. After reading a story we’ll expect you to create basic sketches to give us a rough idea of what you plan to produce. You’ll work with the editor to come up with a final design.

We also need graphic designers to support us with making infographics, logos and branding. An interest in human rights and sensitivity to the subjects we’re writing about is essential. A portfolio or Instagram profile showing your previous work is desirable. The successful candidates will be enthusiastic and reliable. We need you to have excellent time management to deliver work to deadline. These roles operate on an ad hoc basis but may require one piece of art per month (at a mutually convenient time to be arranged). This position is paid at approx. £12.50 per hour.

To apply, please produce a basic piece of art or an infographic relating to one of the stories on our site (preferably one that isn't already accompanied by art) or another human rights issue of your choice. Email this with your CV (including links to any relevant work) and a covering letter (max 250 words) to hello@lacuna.org.uk by midnight on Friday 15th October 2021.
