The Center for Digital Humanities at Princeton University is hiring a contract Web/Graphics Designer to work on the Princeton and Slavery Digital Archive. Position to begin immediately.
The Princeton and Slavery digital archive and research environment will invite users to explore the impact and legacy of slavery at Princeton University. It will include information on students, faculty, slaves, former slaves, and their descendants, and it will tell a story encoded in the landscape and heritage of the campus, its buildings, monuments, and traditions. Drawing on a dynamic database of primary sources, interpretive exhibits, maps, timelines, and other features, the site will allow users to visualize and analyze the intimate relationship between Princeton and America’s “peculiar institution.” As a platform for teaching, research, and public debate, the site will contribute to broader discussions about slavery and universities, and it will explore how these two institutions worked together to construct, and to continue to shape, the modern world.
Responsibilities include: designing and implementing a modern, mobile-friendly theme for an existing Omeka database, developing a coherent graphic design in consultation with project leads, improving the visual flow of individual Omeka exhibits, incorporating a site-specific logo and appropriate images and fonts.
To apply, please send: CV/Resume, recent portfolio of work, and estimated project timeline and cost to Sarah Meadows (firstname.lastname@example.org). See the full Statement of Work for details: https://digitalhumanities.princeton.edu/princeton-slavery-project/graphic-designer/
