Full Time
The Art/Photo Editor is the key creative support for several large and innovative content marketing projects. We work with Fortune 500 companies that have specific needs, and we provide unexpected marketing solutions. Each project is unique and requires a different visual strategy. The Art/Photo Editor must work simultaneously on multiple projects while making each client feel like the priority. Because we treat each client as our only client.

As the direct contact on projects it is key that the Art/Photo Editor keep the Creative Director informed, and that they ensure that the overall visual strategy is being implemented correctly and at the highest quality.

We are a small company, so we all have multiple jobs and our workloads and responsibilities shift daily. That broad responsibility provides opportunities to grow quickly. We want people who when they see gaps in our organization, step up and offer solutions. And when they see opportunities in the marketplace, they propose strategies.

What we'd like to see:

* Original ideas

* Conceptual thinking and problem solving

* Obsessive, compulsive attention to visual quality

* Team mentality

* Independent thinking

What we require:

* Aptitude for finding the best images and visuals from stock sources

* Highly experienced photo research, photo rights and clearances

* Excellent communication and time management

* Experience with web content management and optimizing visuals for the web

* High proficiency in Adobe Photoshop

* Proficient in Adobe inDesign

* Layout design execution experience a plus

* At least 2+ years of magazine or agency creative department experience

Please include at least 3 references.
