Senior Designer

  • Job Description:
    SEEKING: Senior Designer for Custom Publishing Company We are Topix Media Lab, a custom publishing company seeking someone at the senior designer level. You are...possibly the person who will help us end our search. You'll work directly with our creative director and help our small but energetic staff create a different magazine every two weeks. We're a fast-paced office and our design team works at lightning speed, so those without an expert knowledge of the Adobe Creative Suite will likely be out of their depth. We're also seeking someone who doesn't need a lot of hand holding, because--if it wasn't already clear--we've got a lot of work to do. We expect you to bring a designer's eye, an editor's brain and an artist's soul to every project we'll task you with working on, which might be anything from turning copy into a gorgeous layout or working hand in hand with our Creative Director to create an entire template for a future publication. Every day is different. We're staffed by veterans from the magazine industry who have worked at titles such as Rolling Stone, FHM, Sports Illustrated, Men's Health, People and Jane, and we create magazines for brands such as Newsweek, Reader's Digest and TV Guide Magazine. We'd love to add you to our team, assuming you're amazing. Interested applicants should reply with a resume, a link to your portfolio and a short cover letter explaining why we can't live without you. At a glance requirements: -Must be able to handle multiple projects at once in a very fast-paced environment -2 years plus experience in consumer print magazine design -Expert in InDesign (emphasis on speed and accuracy) -Proficient in Illustrator and Photoshop -Under supervision of creative director, ability to create original templates from ground-up for magazines ranging across wide subject areas. -A sense of humor, please, for the love of God
