Designer Openings

Posted 12/10/2013

The Villages Daily Sun, America’s fastest growing daily newspaper, is expanding its staff and seeking news, sports and features designers with a passion for community journalism.

The Daily Sun believes in the future of print and is defying national trends of declining circulation numbers and downsizing staff. We’re a 90-mile drive to the beach, the theme parks and the historic neighborhoods of Gainesville and St. Augustine. We offer competitive pay, excellent benefits and access to a highly regarded school system in one of the state’s most idyllic settings.

We take career development seriously – ours is a newsroom in which good visual journalists become great.

Applicants should be proficient in InDesign and have a college degree, strong communication abilities and an experimental mindset. Florida residents familiar with the area are a plus. Successful candidates should be comfortable working across newsroom teams to develop the day’s top stories – whatever they may be.

Apply by sending your resume, references and four to six design samples that show your visual editing abilities to the attention of Matthew Fry, Managing Editor for Staff Development, at matthew.fry@thevillagesmedia.com.
