The History Workshop creates indoor and outdoor exhibits, exhibit plans, educational programs, web sites, and interactive environments for museums, parks, non-profit organizations, government agencies, and private companies. Most of our past exhibit projects centered on cultural and natural history. The History Workshop is a division of Brockington and Associates, one of the largest independent heritage resource management firms in the nation. Many of our projects are done in conjunction with our staff archaeologists and historians.
The History Workshop is looking for a motivated and creative designer with a minimum of 3-5 years of hands-on, professional graphic design experience in print and display design including exhibit displays, signage, labels, advertisements, publications, websites, and marketing collateral (business cards, flyers, brochures). You should have a thorough understanding of color, composition, typography, general design principles, and effective creative decision making. Some experience in industrial design, space planning, photography, and/or videography, and familiarity with museum design is a plus. You should be able to design production-ready artwork for exhibits, and create floor plans, exhibit component sketches, and renderings. You should be passionate about great design, always looking for ways to innovate, and able to explain why your work is effective and relevant. Speaking with clients and team members about design is a key skill. Your designs should have aesthetic appeal and communicate the client’s message.
