Job Requirements RITTA is looking for a freelance to full-time production artist who is a Northern New Jersey resident to join our team.

Primary responsibility:
The position focuses on production: preparing files for print - product brochures, magazine publications, spec sheets - in addition to some digital/web. While majority of your time will be spent on print, it is imperative that you're equally skilled on the digital side. You will be creating components for existing designs, building out colorways and finalizing files.

We are looking for someone who is extremely proficient with inserting text into InDesign CS3 files (we know, we know...), as well as working within InCopy, making text revisions and checking/adjusting text for visual appearance.

You will work as a team with our head writer and product specialist/proofreader to fulfill very tight deadlines. Must be willing to "learn" the entire automotive product line-up for our client and to be able to identify vehicles and their nuances at a glance.

Additional image work on layouts generated in the U.S. - Photoshop retouching experience needed for image adjustments, color correction, background extensions, etc is a plus!

- Strong typographic skills and understanding
- Ability to work independently, to take direction, and to work as part of a team
- Strong time management skills with the ability to multitask and meet deadlines
- Strong organizational skills with the ability to prioritize
- Self-motivated and diligent worker who takes pride their work
- Has an understanding of creative development and the design process
- Has excellent written and verbal communication skills
- Is organized with extraordinary problem-solving skills
