I’m going on a cleanse to find myself. Well, that might be a bit much, but I am trying to make some personal changes, and with them, come changes to the site. Since I started The Fox Is Black (and Kitsune Noir before that) I’ve always treated the site as “just something I do” without giving it much further thought. For the past months though I’ve been giving the site a lot of thought, namely, what’s the point?
Well, I have a lot of ideas around this question, but I’m closing down the site for the week in order to figure out the details. A big part of the break will be spent refocusing the site from an editorial perspective. I’ve realized, both personally and professionally, that it’s easy to make a beautifully designed website, but it’s only as good as the stories you put in it. It will still be the site you love, but hopefully a better, more refined version.
That said, I am looking to add some talented writers to the roster of TFIB. I’m searching for writers who are obsessed with contemporary design, typography, illustration or fine art. I want writers with strong opinions, who understands trends vs. fads, and keeps a positive attitude in their writing. I’m hoping to find a mixture of paid full-time, writers as well as part-time writers who’d like to contribute to the site less frequently.
If interested, please send an email about yourself (like a paragraph, please keep it short and sweet) along with links to pieces you’ve written, to [email protected]. I’m looking to hire people in the next week or two, so be sure to email soon.
