Rebar is hiring … for two positions!


We are excited to announce that we are seeking two outstanding individuals to join our growing team of artists and designers!

Rebar is a small and growing art and design studio located in San Francisco’s Mission District. Our projects occupy the intersection of art, design and ecology, but span many disciplines and often engage outside collaborators. Architecture, landscape and art practice are the core skillsets with which we approach the world. Rebar’s reputation in the arenas of art and design is outsized compared to our studio size. Though our image is often rightly associated with guerrilla tactics, we have developed a professional design studio that is taking on some of the most interesting projects in the modern urban landscape. Our clients include museums, public agencies, private companies, neighborhood groups, architects and developers and arts organizations. Within the studio, we have a fluid and democratic structure that allows for maximum collaboration. We believe that the human environment—public space in particular—should be infused with ecological knowledge, resilient to changing social conditions, responsive to creative impulses, and filled with opportunities for benevolence, conviviality, and delight. We design to make that happen.
