Welcome to desigNYC’s 4th cycle of pro bono design service collaborations. Thank you for your interest in offering your services. To give you a sense of schedules, we plan to review applications in late fall, and shortlist possible projects and collaborators around the end of the year. Our goal is to notify everyone by end of December/early January 2013, if we have a project that matches your passion and expertise. You will be then invited to a kickoff session and training workshop to kick start your collaboration in late January/early February 2013.
Please note: desigNYC typically gives preference to design firms or sole practitioners rather than employees of firms that intend to work on projects in their spare time. Given the time commitment typically required by desigNYC, it is impossible to participate in a project in off hours. If you are applying as an on-staff individual at a firm, please be prepared to supply an official letter of support from your employer.
Deadline for submission is WED. NOVEMBER 14 at 12 midnight EST.
Please keep each response direct and to the point (under 150 words) to help our kind judges with the review process.
In addition to the application below, please submit a mini-portfolio in PDF form containing 4-6 pages highlighting recent related projects. We are looking for images/overviews that help us understand your design approach, expertise and capabilities. This information will help us make a better match. Please name your PDF portfolio: YourFirmName_folioDES2013.pdf
Send the PDF to: firstname.lastname@example.org with YourFirmName_folioDES2013.pdf in the subject line of your email.
