Post Typography seeks a graphic designer with heart, hands, and brains—someone who wants to work with us, not just for us; a designer who takes a real stake in their work; someone with the drive to grow and improve their own practice (and isn’t afraid of semi-colons).
We’re looking for a designer with a young, hungry attitude and ideas, but possessing the maturity required to create solid real-world work from the ground up. The ideal candidate will have multiple years high-level professional or equivalent freelance experience. Our diverse practice comprises everything from traditional print design and layout to editorial illustration, logos/identity, book and album cover design, writing, infographics, signage and 3D, posters, animation, web, apparel, and much more. Expect to get your hands dirty collaborating on all aspects of a wide variety of generally cool and mentally stimulating projects. We have a focused yet laid-back studio environment—we take our work seriously but ourselves not-so-much.
Post Typography is a small “boutique” design studio based in Baltimore whose work has received numerous fancy design awards and been featured in lots of fancy design books. Our clients include institutions such as the U.S. Green Building Council and the Baltimore Museum of Art, publications such as the New York Times and WIRED, publishers including Penguin and Random House, and numerous independent record labels, arts organizations, small businesses, and musicians. Before sending us your portfolio, please learn more about what we do at www.posttypography.com.
Position is salaried, full-time, on-site at our studio in Baltimore. Starting dates are flexible, and we are reviewing portfolios on an ongoing basis.
Please inform us of any peripheral skills/interests (such as drawing, web design, programming, photography, writing, etc.) as they are always a bonus!

Absolutely no phone calls, cold calls, or jerks. XOXO.
Since Post Typography is a small studio, we only offer one or two internships a year to exceptional, motivated students or recent grads who have some experience freelancing or working in a studio environment.
While we do not typically hire outside illustrators, we are always looking for awesome, well-rounded designers, artists, and thinkers who we would like to get to know or potentially work with. Send your PDF, web portfolio link, or YouTube cat montage to . We promise to look at your portfolio, but we do not have time to respond to everyone individually. (No phone calls, please.)
The studio regularly unleashes itself upon a wide variety of large- and small-scale projects for a client list that includes corporations and non-profits as well as artists, arts organizations, and small businesses. Post Typography’s work has received numerous fancy-pants design awards and has been recognized by the Type Directors Club, Communication Arts, Print Magazine, the Society of News Design, and the Society of Publication Designers among many others. Publications of the studio’s work include a Post Typography monograph by European publisher Pyramyd Éditions and appearances in such books as Phaidon’s Area 2, Taschen’s Contemporary Graphic Design, and Ellen Lupton and Jennifer Cole Phillips’ Graphic Design: The New Basics. Post Typography have appeared in many design and art exhibitions, and their posters are collected by high school punk rockers and prominent designers (whom they consider equally important).
Founding partners Nolen Strals and Bruce Willen have collaborated on design, art, and music projects for more than twelve years, beginning with hand-printed concert posters and progressing to higher profile design and illustration projects for clients such as The New York Times, U.S. Green Building Council, John Legend & The Roots, and Random House. Strals and Willen are authors of Lettering & Type, a book on lettering and typeface design, published by Princeton Architectural Press, and they currently teach classes in design and typography at the Maryland Institute College of Art. They have lectured at the Cooper Union, Minneapolis College of Art & Design, and Harvard University among others, and have contributed to the Baltimore music scene for many years (most notably with the influential punk band Double Dagger).
