Full Time

The Juneau Empire, Alaska’s award-winning Sunday-Friday capital daily, is accepting resumes for a Page Designer.

 

 The Empire is a 5,000-circulation daily newspaper in an isolated but close-knit community of 33,000 people nestled in the heart of the Tongass National Forest, a temperate rainforest and the largest national forest in North America.

As Alaska’s capital, Juneau sits at the forefront of state government. Our paper focuses on community issues – ranging from municipality issues to environmental and climate change issues -- while also covering Alaska’s billion-dollar oil and gas industry, multi-million dollar fisheries and annual legislative session.

SKILLS: The Juneau Empire has a distinctive, high-impact look that is not only seen by local community members and state legislators but also by the more than 1 million people who pass through Juneau every summer. Our ideal candidate will be able to continue this strong tradition while also incorporating their own creativity to keep the paper’s look modern and up-to-date in design.

 Our ideal candidate will be able to comfortably handle designing 10-12 pages daily for our newspaper. Daily responsibilities include designing other sections in addition to the A news section, and candidate must meet multiple deadlines throughout the day. Planned special sections occur throughout the year.

Candidate must have experience using Adobe InDesign and Photoshop; Illustrator and News Engin experience are a plus. Working comfortably and independently in team settings, knowledge of AP style, and the ability to meet deadline are requirements for this position. Attention to detail is imperative.

QUALIFICATIONS: At least two years’ experience at a daily newspaper; bachelor’s degree in journalism, English, a related field or equivalent work experience required. Preference will be given to qualified candidates in Alaska and the Pacific Northwest.

Juneau is a small, growing town with much to offer. To call it an outdoor adventurer’s paradise would be an understatement. Juneau offers hundreds of trail miles through untouched wilderness leading to glaciers, waterfalls and mountain peaks. More than a million people visit Alaska’s capital every summer, many by cruise ship, just for a glimpse of what we call home. Local amenities include the University of Alaska Southeast, a nationally renowned micro-brewery, world class ski resort, highly-acclaimed theatre company and symphony orchestra, and a vibrant arts community.  

The Juneau Empire is part of Morris Communications, an industry leader in newspapers and magazines. Morris Communications offers a competitive salary and benefits package, to include health, dental, 401(k), paid time off and financial performance incentives for its reporters.
