When it comes to non-profits, design matters. You may like to think that people will judge organizations by their mission and actions, but it’s often not so. A great logo, a slick website, or a beautiful brochure is often the best way for an organization to prove its legitimacy. The same biases play out in the business world. Professional design is a sign of professional quality. If you’re going to donate to, volunteer for, spread the word about, or apply for a job with a non-profit organization, you’re more likely to do it if their design impresses you. Hopefully NYC based Empax will impress you with their design. They are “a pioneering graphic design house devoted exclusively to helping nonprofit organizations meet their marketing and communication challenges in a unique and effective way.”
Empax is a non-profit for non-profits, as they provide “a complete array of branding services; from logos, stationery and print publications to information design, web design, video and animation.” Their website looks great, and it immediately caught my attention. Unfortunately, it’s a little too slick. Finding information on their Jobs is almost impossible, and even though they have internships posted on Idealist, I couldn’t find them on their site. Still, browsing their site will give you all of the info that you need to know about them, but you’ll kind of have to wander because the information architecture isn’t all that clear. Anyway, Empax is looking for a Junior Graphic Designer, and they posted about it on their blog. To apply you can “send a resume, two references, and no more than five links to work of which you are proud (or an electronic portfolio) to firstname.lastname@example.org.”
