please treat this box as a dissuant. slow is still open to applicants, but—thanks to the wretched abundance of hideously greedy unicorns in the world—will need to be a lot more selective.
if you apply— please demonstrate a healthy aptitude for mixing mediums and perspectives in your work, and also assert how you can produce a certain kind of work with slow that you just can't produce anywhere else in the industry.
slowstudio is looking for sloths to explore critical / emerging perspectives in design over 3–6–12-month periods in 2023–24. sloths work on open-ended briefs; are pushed to imagine ambitiously; must prototype profusely; and can explore several media, skills and approaches through their work. this page displays things sloths have explored in the past.
below, is an old advert (from 2020) describing what slow was looking for. in terms of requirements and expectations, nothing has changed; so, please do read it carefully.
if this resonates with you, please firstname.lastname@example.org. when you do, please include some ideas for the kinds of topics you'd like to explore, and what you imagine yourself making.
unless the application is blatantly spammy (or template-esque), slow replies to every email received. any applicant who does not get hired gets at-least an email with reasons why ; when possible, slowstudio makes time for a conversation, and offers feedback in person.
