Kresge Art Museum Internship: Web Design
Spring 2010
2 Credit Hours

Kresge Art Museum, home to Michigan State University’s collection of over 7,500 art objects, seeks a student to assist in the plan, redesign and execution of an updated and modernized Kresge Art Museum (KAM) website - www.artmuseum.msu.edu.  Additional objectives are to meet and comply with the University’s web accessibility standards and reformat and redesign KAM’s bi-weekly e-newsletter.  Desired skills include proficiency with appropriate computer applications including XHTML, CSS, Adobe Illustrator, Dreamweaver and Joomla!, or any other kind of Content Management System, and familiarity with JavaScript.    

Juniors or seniors in web design or related fields are encouraged to apply.  Must possess the technical ability to work autonomously, but also work in tandem with the KAM webmaster to plan, design, and execute the construction of the new website and e-newsletter, and develop documentation for use in future website developments.  Specifically, the web designer will help to create graphics, redo navigation, provide input, and add a whole new layer of editing and retouches to the website.

The intern will work closely with and be supervised by the KAM webmaster on all aspects of the project; will also be supervised by the KAM Communications and Events Coordinator who will guide the design process; and is required to work a minimum of 6 hours per week during the MSU Spring Semester, January 11 through May 7, 2010.

Please apply with a letter describing your interest and preparation for this position; a resume including complete contact information, education and employment; and work samples that demonstrate ability to carry out the project described above.
