Job Duration Full Time
Job Location Dallas, TX
Job Requirements You’ll be responsible for photography supervision, designing advertising and editorial layouts, working on magazine cover designs, designing online newsletters and promotional materials, working to boost our presence in social networking, and just about anything else you can think of that’s involved with editorial work. You’ll work with our Art Director and an editorial and sales staff dedicated to excellence in neighborhood publishing and communications.

This full-time job pays $30,000-$35,000, depending on skills and experience; we also offer health insurance, free covered parking and eventual employee stock ownership.

Desired Skills & Experience
You must be proficient with Mac computers and InDesign/Creative Cloud; you’ll also be working extensively with Adobe Digital Publishing Suite and with HTML5/responsible design templates. Our websites are built on WordPress, so we need someone who is eager to jump into WordPress site maintenance and design, too. We need to see prior editorial and advertising design examples in your portfolio, and we need to know you will thrive and can be creative under pressure during our magazine deadline/production week, as well as show us you can juggle multiple tasks.

This is a great opportunity for a recent college grad with prior internship/college publication experience or someone who has worked at a company or two and is looking for a better opportunity to showcase your talent in a more relaxed, self-directed environment than you’ve probably experienced.
About Our Company We’re a 23-year-old Dallas media company looking for a full-time graphic designer with the talents to transfer our magazine content (stories, photos, social media) to both print and web. We set a high bar for design abilities (both editorial and advertising) with a medium-paced workplace.

We publish four neighborhood magazines in Dallas, and each has a companion website, weekly e-news blasts, daily news updates, and individual Twitter and Facebook postings. We’re still successful with print, and we’re looking to make sure the businesses in our trade areas are familiar with our online offerings, too.

Our offices are located in the Lakewood area of Dallas, and there are plenty of restaurants within walking distance.
