ABOUT THE ROLE

As our Temporary Production Artist/Designer—reporting to the Senior Art Director—your role will be to take on designs during the final stages of development to ensure accuracy and prepare them for print or digital publication. To be successful in this position, you should combine strong creative and technical skills to format various images and designs, to ensure our print and digital designs meet high quality standards. This is a temporary position expected to last through December 2020, with the possibility of becoming permanent.

ABOUT YOU

You can step back and see the whole picture, where everything connects—and you can zoom in to finesse the tiniest details. You have the technical know-how to get the job done with strong layout skills, organizational abilities and excellent file-categorizing prowess to ensure artwork is production-ready and projects are completed on time. You are as comfortable collaborating with others—from our writers and marketing team to product and tech teams—as you are working on your own. You don’t consider something complete until the kerning or QA is just right, and you love a detailed style guide.
