Description:

The Index-Journal Co. in Greenwood, SC is looking for a page designer who wants to grow and expand his or her talents on multiple levels as there is the opportunity to do more than newspaper design.

We are a family-owned company that not only publishes a daily newspaper, but also magazines, events brochures, special sections and more. Ours is the ideal environment for the creative person who wants to and can do more than cookie-cutter work and who seeks a career in which he or she can flourish and make a mark. The ideal candidate possesses strong design skills using Adobe InDesign. The ideal candidate should also possess strong language skills as a wordsmith, proofreader and communicator.

In the past six years, our newspaper alone has collected more than 200 South Carolina Press Association awards, a number of them for page design. So yes, our expectations for this candidate are high. We've won the President's Cup, a points-based honor given to the best newspaper in each circulation category. We've placed in General Excellence (overall newspaper award) four of the last six years. 

Want to join our award-winning team? Want to work at a company not tied to the corporate structure, endlessly slashing staff in hopes of generating more money for stockholders? Want to work where high quality is the paramount objective? Where in-house design trumps design hubs that crank out template-driven pages? Newspaper experience preferred, but we will consider other candidates.

To apply, send your resume, a cover letter and 5-10 page-design clips via regular mail or email to: Richard Whiting Executive Editor P.O. Box 1018 Greenwood, SC 29648 rwhiting@indexjournal.com No phone calls please.
