The Washington Post has an opening for a designer on its Design team. The ideal candidate will be working on deadline in a fast-paced environment throughout the newsroom -- from the Style section to Metro and other weekly sections. The Design team is responsible for the design of the newspaper and its magazine, and contributes to the Post's digital apps and long-form enterprise design. These positions will be heavily involved in print, but every designer on the staff is also designing for digital products. Designing for projects and even A-1 will be expected. The ideal candidates must have the ability to design print and digital projects which are bold, surprising and energetic, while balancing navigational clarity and section pacing and adhering to The Post's standards of accuracy and news judgment. Proven skills with photo journalism, graphics and typography are essential. We place a premium on collaboration and expect designers to be catalysts for creativity. Our designers are expected to be self-starters who add value to stories using alternative formats, to articulate reasons for design decisions, and to take initiative in planning processes to make The Post's pages as strong as possible. The positions will include evenings and weekend work and at least four years of publication experience is required. Experience with Eidos Methode or digital design a plus. Proficiency in Photoshop, InDesign and Illustrator is required. Digital experience is preferred.
