The U.S.-based arts service organization Fractured Atlas is seeking a graphic/UI designer to imagine and create the look and feel for a new cultural asset mapping/visualization web application for the arts and culture sector in the U.S. The umbrella project, the Initiative for Sustainable Arts in America, is spearheaded by the Hauser Center for Non-Profit Organizations at Harvard with the Foundation Center acting as a research partner and Fractured Atlas working on the software piece.
The application will aggregate numerous data sources from the arts sector (data about audiences, non-profit & for-profit arts-related businesses, spaces where art happens, grants, demographics, psychographics, etc.) into an interface that provides both map-based and chart/graph-based visualizations. The underlying goal for the software component is to provide a tool to the sector that they can and will actually *use* to inform their strategic planning, advocacy efforts, and marketing campaigns. Graphic/user interface design is critical to achieving this goal.
We are looking for a designer with proven experience in both UI design and data visualization. It is not necessary for this person to be a programmer; however, we're open to the right person being involved with the front-end coding as well as the design. Your work would be largely autonomous; however, there will be some collaboration (probably remote) with a small team. This is a contract position with a lot of work right away and the potential to continue working on the project into 2014 and beyond. Ideally, the designer will be U.S.-based; however, we're open to talking with fantastic designers abroad.
If this is of interest to you, please email me with a link to your portfolio and/or attach design samples. If you want more information about the project, don't hesitate to reach out.
