Are you ready to take the next step in your design career? Do you have interest in helping great organizations develop public policy and strengthen their messaging? Would you enjoy working directly with knowledgeable professionals and experts in important topics such as education, foster care, the environment or dozens of other topics that have an incredibly difficult time explaining their organizations to anyone without a PhD in their respective fields?

If this sounds right up your alley, you may be interested in becoming our newest Designer in the fastest growing division of News & Review (N&R). The N&R Publications Department produces a wide range of 4- to 16-page custom publications, which tell the story of an organization through profiles that illustrate its mission. The purpose is to move the readers to action. Our clients are primarily nonprofits, service organizations, and government agencies. A sampling can be seen at www.nrpubs.com. N&R has produced over 300 custom publications that are handed out, inserted into newspapers, and used in various forms of social media.

The Custom Publications Designer functions as a member of the Design Team, which is responsible for creative solutions for editorial, marketing, corporate and sales challenges.

We have historically provided members of the cannabis business and adult business communities opportunities to advertise, as well as private parties seeking relationships through the personals. A great deal of this advertising is handled through our classified department. As an employee of News & Review, you may observe transactions involving cannabis products and services, and personal or adult advertisers. These transactions may include suggestive or sexual visual material, and suggestive or sexual information being relayed over the telephone or by email. Additionally, the editorial content of our newspaper is often edgy and sometimes controversial.

Next Steps:

If all of this is you, please apply through Indeed. In addition to uploading your resume, please include a thoughtful cover letter that includes a link to your digital design portfolio and tells us why you are our next Designer and provides answers to the following:

  • Why are you interesting in designing for N&R Publications?
  • What makes a great insert or publication?
  • If a client had a goal, for instance reducing the stigma around mental illness, what kinds of design elements do you think our team would incorporate to accomplish that goal?
  • What experiences have you had that have provided you with the skills to do this job?
  • What would you like us to know about that we won't learn from your resume?

Applicants who do not fulfill all cover letter requirements will not be considered.

The News & Review is proud to be an equal opportunity employer that actively seeks diversity in the workplace.

No telephone calls, including agency reps, please. This position will remain open until filled.
