The Northside Media Group, publisher of The L and Brooklyn Magazine, is seeking a new Art Director. The ideal candidate will have a passion for magazines and digital media, as well as a strong background in design and the ability manage a team in a fast-paced environment where multiple projects are often happening simultaneously.

The Art Director will work directly with the Editor-in-Chief and Managing Editor to come up with concepts for editorial content across both magazines and websites, covering topics like food & drink, music, art, film, homes & interiors, fashion, and the general goings on in Brooklyn. This person will work closely with a group of freelance photographers (and in some cases producers and stylists) to coordinate shoots, while also managing budgets and a small team of interns. A working knowledge of Word Press is preferred, as the company’s websites are currently being redesigned and moved to that platform.

In addition to editorial work, the responsibilities include overseeing the production of promotional materials for our various event series, from the Northside Festival and Summerscreen to a major upcoming food festival and other smaller events that take place throughout the year.

The Art Director should be able to balance creative work with the more administrative and managerial duties the position demands, all while communicating clearly with co-workers, clients and vendors.

Knowledge of Indesign is essential; knowledge of CSS is strongly preferred.

To apply, please send a cover letter, resumé and links to your design work.
