National Journal Magazine relaunched last year as the premier outlet for thoughtful, smart, fun-to-read storytelling about Washington, politics, and policy.

In addition to excellent design skills, our ideal art director would come with a large rolodex of outstanding freelance artists and photographers who would help to enliven our pages--as well as an understanding of the long hours and sometimes-frenetic-atmosphere involved in putting out a weekly magazine.
