Flat Vernacular is a Brooklyn-based design company that specializes in original hand-drawn, hand-printed, and bespoke wallpapers. Keeping things on a smaller and more personal scale is very important to the craft as well as the spirit behind Flat Vernacular. We take great time and care with each project that comes to us, and are happy to work with clients both large and small.
We endeavor to keep a consistent conversation open between fine art and design within all of our creations, whether they be our stock designs or something created specially for a client. Keeping one foot firmly in fine art and one in design allows for our visual capabilities and design skills to remain expansive yet thoughtful. We try to remain faithful to the tradition and character of wallpaper while utilizing a more contemporary twist on the designs themselves.
Full and part time internships are available for the summer. We are happy to exchange both studio access and class credit for time worked. This internship involves general studio help, sample cutting, screen printing, errands, and most importantly help around and during the International Contemporary Furniture Fair (May 19-22). Schedule is flexible. Printmaking/screen printing experience is a major plus, Photoshop/Illustrator skills are helpful as well.
