Page Designer & Content Producer
We are Fenice Community Media, publishers of three community newspapers and a variety of other print and digital products. We are currently seeking qualified candidates for a full-time page designer and content producer role at our design center located in Cedar Park, Texas, a suburb of the vibrant and energetic city of Austin.
This job involves layout, design, and page building for our newspapers and magazine products on weekly and monthly deadlines as well as posting content to our websites and assisting with social media scheduling. Candidates must have newspaper and/or magazine page building experience utilizing Adobe Creative Suite products (InDesign, Photoshop) on a Mac platform. Must also have a solid grasp of written English including spelling and grammar. Experience with a content management system strongly preferred.
Candidates should be able to work quickly and efficiently, translating instructions and guidance provided by our editorial staff into visually appealing and attention-grabbing pages that meet standard AP style as well as our own style guidelines. Must be organized and have good interpersonal skills, excellent follow-up skills and the ability to effectively communicate work status, updates, and need for additional information in order to complete projects.
The responsibilities for this job are predominantly layout, design, typesetting and flowing copy onto pages. Knowledge of various file types and use of graphic elements, including file type conversions, is required, as is a good sense of visually appealing page design. Knowledge of various social media platforms, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTube and TikTok are necessary. Video editing skills are a plus!
This is NOT a 'graphic design' or 'graphic artist' role and those skills are not necessary for this position.
The typical work schedule is Monday-Friday, with the heaviest page design workload being Monday,-Wednesday each week. This position has been a remote (work-from-home) since March 2020, and we are open to a candidate’s choice of working in our Cedar Park office or remotely (or a combination of remote and in-office).
We offer a competitive starting pay and benefits including health insurance and paid time off. If you meet the above qualifications and are ready for the challenge, please submit your resume, cover letter, relevant work samples and salary requirements when applying.
