The Forum seeks versatile page designer
Location:

Description:

 

The Forum of Fargo-Moorhead is seeking a versatile and energetic person to join its team of page designers. The ideal candidate would be able to design bold, striking pages with dynamic art and eye-catching headlines. The Forum isn’t afraid to take risks with its design, especially on A1. Our covers are consistently in the Newseum Top 10, and featured on Charles Apple’s design blog and NewsPageDesigner.org. We’re looking for a designer who can not only build six-column centerpieces daily, but can also dissect a story and get to its heart to create an illustration if need be or can find additional information for a breakout that will add more to a story.

This designer must also possess sound news judgment, work efficiently, be able to turn a page on its head in the event of breaking news, and be able to upload content to our website. Design will primarily be on A1, Metro+State and Business sections, and some features pages. Experience building charts, graphics and illustrations is preferred, but not required.

The position involves evening and some weekend work, and salary will be based on experience. At least one year working in the newspaper business is preferred. Send letters of interest along with four to six samples of your work to Presentation Editor Bill Wambeke at wwambeke@forumcomm.com.

Fargo is a vibrant and growing metro community in the heart of the northern Plains. Forum Communications Co., owner of The Forum, owns a network of print, broadcast and online outlets that provide many growth opportunities.
