About Our Company ALARM Press is seeking a Features Art Director to help layout Design Bureau, ALARM, and Modern Weddings magazines for print and digital formats, design various marketing and event collateral, and assist with online materials and client advertisements. The Features Art Director will work under the direction of the Informer Art Director and Editor-in-Chief in producing content-driven, intelligent design solutions, from the concept stage to production. This position is located on Michigan Avenue in a casual environment.

Established in 1995, ALARM Press creates magazines on lifestyle, music, and design. Started with a DIY “zine” ethos, ALARM Press was launched by publisher Chris Force, who sought to create a music and art magazine that featured bands, artists, and genres that weren’t usually covered in glossy newsstand magazines but were just as inspirational. Now publishing from an office headquartered in Chicago with a cast of contributing writers spread across the country, the ALARM Press staff listens to thousands of CDs, views hundreds of gallery openings, and attends many lectures and live concerts in order to present exhilarating artists who are fueled by an honest and contagious obsession with their art.
In addition to ALARMPress.com and ALARM Magazine, ALARM Press produces a monthly publication rooted in design culture entitled Design Bureau. DB delivers an honest and inspirational global dialogue on design from diverse disciplines and points of view. And launching in January 2014 is Modern Weddings, a quarterly publication that will feature the most inspiring weddings and bridal industry professionals from around the world.
