Slate Seeks a Design Blogger

Writers with strong visual skills encouraged to apply.

Work For Slate

Slate seeks a design nut with crystal clear copywriting skills, a strong visual sense, and a fountain of new ideas to help us launch an image heavy design blog. The ideal candidate should have omnivorous interests and fresh takes on a wide range of topics including but not limited to technology, landscaping, interiors, architecture, and history. You should be immersed enough in the design world to be up on all of the latest developments, able to highlight the most noteworthy for our readers while bringing a gimlet eye to the latest overhyped craze. The ability to work quickly and attend to details on tight deadlines is a must. Previous design writing experience is a strong plus.

Please send a statement of interest (300 words or fewer), along with a résumé and two links to your best writing, to slatedesignjob at gmail dot com. Applications are due by Aug. 6.

This is a part-time contract position based out of our New York City office.
