Digital Art Director

Digital Art Director Mother Jones, which recently won the Magazine of the Year award from the American Society of Magazine Editors, is looking for a digital art director to push the visual story-telling envelope, improve our UX, and discover new ways to connect with our readers. You: Live and breathe great design and have a strong foundation in typography, photography, illustration, and usability. And you love journalism, and know that right now is an incredible moment to bring the two together for a big impact. You relish both big-picture brainstorming and hands-on design work. You're a nimble, even-tempered multitasker who enjoys the magic of conjuring great work from a limited budget and staff. You want design that is smart but not prissy, groundbreaking but approachable, eye-opening, not head-scratching. Us: A reader-supported, nonprofit news organization that publishes a torrent of original reporting each day on our site, in addition to our gorgeous bimonthly print magazine. You will work closely with a talented art, photo and production team and reporters and editors committed to innovation. With a great team and an Ozzie-winning redesign in place, we look forward to innovating on the reader experience, including the design of marquee stories and engagement projects. You'll work on everything from fast-turnaround photo illustrations to longer-term premier projects (such as the massive private prison expose we published last year, or our Russia scandal vertical) and a new initiative to incorporate documentary filmmaking and animation into the newsroom workflow. We're particularly interested in candidates with UX as well as design chops--and, of course, you'll bring your expertise to the print product too, helping to ensure that powerful, in-depth reporting shines across all our channels. We're looking for someone who'll light our imaginations on fire, but who relishes teamwork in a breaking news environment where the art and design staff are not walled off from the journalists; who is eager to be a part of an organization that is designed for the future, not the past. This position is based in our San Francisco office; remote is not an option.
