Yanko Design Is Looking For Writers

The site is growing more quickly than we could have possibly imagined, reaching 1.7 million page views per month! We’re looking for a couple of design-loving writers to join our team! You don’t have to be a professional writer or even be a designer, but you must enjoy writing about design and be capable of expressing yourself in a clear, engaging way.

We need someone who can commit to blogging daily or every two days, but we’re extremely flexible about the schedule. To apply, we need:

• Three sample posts
• A few words about yourself and why you’re interested in design or writing about design
• Your Resume
• Your contact info and scheduling, including a ballpark number of posts per week
• Your rate per post

How to apply

Once your application is complete, send us an e-mail at resumes-at-yankodesign.com

    I stumbled upon your website and fell in love with it. I wish I could apply as a writer, but I come here for design information and would not be the best contributor. Best of luck to you guys on your search.

    You guys have a deadline for this?
    Thanks in advance.

    • Technically we do not have a deadline set but we received many applicants, and we’re currently in the process of sifting through applications.

    But I’m worry about my English ability( specially grammar errors) because i’m not an english native writter.
    Actually I’m Korean. but I really want this.
    I’ll wait for your reply. Thanks.

    Maybe I can give a try.

    I have been coming to this site ever since I discovered it a year ago. As an industrial designer I would love the opportunity to contribute to this site as well as get the first look at emerging tech.

  • tanuki says:

    which blog are we going to post in?

    i am an electronics engineer and would be interested writing for you.

    I am in Southeast Asia. would that be alright?

  • Logan U says:

    Hey there
    I’m an industrial design student in Toronto, and I love writing. Used to pen articles for a few small newspapers and stuff, so if you’re interested, I definitely am.

    Hi, little off topic question, but I was wondering what keyboard is depicted in the thumbnail image for this topic? Looks very sleek.

    Many Thanks

  • John says:

    Yeah, keyboard looks great.
    Can you give the model?

  • tanuki says:

    you mention “Three sample posts” in the application requirements. do we post them at a specific site or can we send in a document of our sample technical articles?

    thanks.

  • I’m happy to hear that Yankodesign is growing so much …good news. I would also be interested to get in the Yanko Design team, but I think I need more details.

  • Tom says:

    Are you still taking applications?

  • Jason says:

    I have submitted my application. I hope the attached Word file didn’t get removed by protection software. Look forward to hearing from you folks. 🙂

    A friend of mine forwarded the link to this post to me. I took a look at the Random Designs page and skimmed over it. There are some very fascinating concepts there. I’m actually a freelance graphic artist but in my free time on occasion I write movie reviews for a couple of websites. Its not a job I just do it for fun and some people have said they like my reviews. I guess thats why my buddy referred me to this post. I’m not sure what kind of “rate per post” I would expect but this does sound interesting to me. I don’t know if I would really qualify to write reviews about designs but it could be something I could try I suppose.

  • While we probably couldn’t help you with daily content – we could help you fill the pet section on Yanko with some standout designs. Check out our site for more: http://PupStyle.com

    any updates?

  • Stefan says:

    is their an age required?

  • Hi there!

    I tried sending my application via e-mail but I guess you posted a wrong address above? Can’t be delivered, FYI.

    Anyway, here’s about myself…

    Just recently, I discovered that I can write, I started on blogs but most are merely serious (since my condition WAS in my emotional, distressed mode) but I can also be witty, funny, depends on the demand.

    I’m graphic designer by the way, from different industries of this country; hotel, law, ad agency, etc. I love writing and I can see that this could be a good step for me to do blogs / writings since you market the same field – designs.

    You can check out everything about me ang my blogs here: http://michellecledesma.multiply.com/

    Looking forward to hear from you!

    Best,
    michelle

    The words “include a resume” always scare me off. I don’t have anything on there that relates to blogging.
