The ideal candidate will have experience with magazine design, have their finger on the pulse of design trends, be obsessed with storytelling and packaging, and be excited to share the plant-based lifestyle with the world. They must also be a great communicator, highly organized, love working on a creative team, and bring their A game to everything they do. Top-notch design skills are of the utmost importance: the candidateâ€™s portfolio should demonstrate a solid facility for layout design, typography, color, and branding. Additional production skills and prepress/printing knowledge are critical.
Your primary responsibility will be to manage the entire design process of our 100-page, quarterly magazine. This includes conceptualizing stories with VegNews' editors, working with food photographers, page design, pre-press preparation, etc. There may also be additional design projects around marketing, building digital images, and more. This is an absolute dream job for the right candidate, who will be trained by our longtime (retiring) designer.
Please send your resumÃ©, cover letter, and portfolio link to [email protected] with "I Want to Be Your Designer!" in the subject line. We want to know why you think youâ€™re the perfect fit for this position, which means knowing the magazine.
