Description:

The Villages Daily Sun, America’s fastest growing daily newspaper, is seeking a sports & projects 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 snagged 10 SND awards this year and have been a finalist for SND's World's Best Designed Newspaper three of the past seven years. 

We’re looking for a visual editor with experience presenting content across sections under deadline pressure. This position on our projects team also requires interfacing with newsroom leaders on multiple teams, so you must be comfortable contributing to a rigorous editing process.

Ours is a newsroom that values experimental thinking and the power of unconventional storytelling. We offer a generous newshole, impeccable print quality, current technology (fully Mac and Creative Suite shop) 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.
