Jobs at mental_floss! We're Looking for a Design Genius
Just a reminder to forward this to your super-talented, artsy neighbors, friends and kids!
mental_floss is on the hunt for a design genius to fill our full-time Assistant Art Director position. We're looking for candidates who are excited about innovative publication design, skilled in delivering eye-popping graphics, and most importantly, willing to work hard!
About the gig:
Working closely with our Senior Art Director, you'll get to develop fresh graphics and layouts for our bi-monthly magazine. But that just scratches the surface. Along with publication work, you'll have the opportunity to design t-shirts, spruce up the website, concept board games, and even design posters and book covers. (There's no shortage of new projects!)
How do you get the job?
Candidates must be proficient in InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator. We're also looking for a portfolio that showcases your publication design savvy. Applicants must be able to develop concepts and create polished, print-ready artwork both independently and cooperatively. Oh, and we'd love to see your ability to work in other design mediums, just so we know you're the real deal. Basic web design experience is a plus but not required. And while experience counts, talent counts more.
Where is it?
You'll be working from our sunny, Birmingham, AL office located in a former Dr Pepper plant. The loft features large sunny windows, two loving dogs, and a fun, non-corporate atmosphere. Candidates with a lighthearted sense of humor and a strong work ethic are preferred!
If interested, please submit your cover letter, resume and pdf samples (in one file, please) to email@example.com.
