Description:

The Villages Daily Sun, America’s fastest growing daily newspaper, is seeking a designer to define the high-end of what is possible in community journalism. Join a high-octane team whose work is consistently recognized at the industry level – we've been a finalist for SND's World's Best Designed Newspaper three of the past six years. 

We’re looking for a visual thinker who’s comfortable presenting content across sections. This is a job in which we're as interested in potential as pedigree, and entry-level candidates are welcome to apply.

Ours is a newsroom that values experimental thinking and the power of unconventional storytelling. We offer the newshole, print quality, technology (fully Mac) and leadership support that enable good visual journalists to become truly great.

We’re a 90-mile drive to the beach, Orlando’s theme parks and the historic neighborhoods of Gainesville and St. Augustine. We offer competitive pay, excellent benefits and access to a highly regarded charter school system in one of the state’s most idyllic settings.
