Forum Design Center is seeking a part-time newspaper page designer to help our team while you grow your skills. This position will work 16-20 hours per week, with scheduling flexible around any classes you’re taking. This position will require some nights and weekend shifts, as well as a holiday rotation.
Our team members are responsible for the design of all of Forum Communications’ newspapers. Designers work primarily in InDesign, with some work in Photoshop and Illustrator depending on skill level, creating engaging and creative pages that meet print specifications while also appealing to the reader. In this part-time position, we also want to focus on helping you learn new skills that will make you even more marketable when you look for full-time work, whether that’s with us or another area of design or art.
The ideal candidate has a background in graphic design, communicates ideas well through chat messages, can juggle multiple deadlines and priorities, is willing to learn from their coworkers in addition to sharing their skills and knowledge, and has a passion for helping our communities stay informed. People who excel in this role push for excellence and maintain high standards even on the tight turnarounds of daily newspaper work. Our hope is that whoever we hire in this role will grow into someone we can hire full-time when they finish their education or have had enough on the job training to manage the role.
Forum Communications Company is a family-owned newspaper and communications company that has been in operation for more than 125 years. We are located in the heart of downtown Fargo and not too far from Minnesota’s beautiful lakes country. If you are seeking a career where you can help to grow our company, interact with coworkers and know that your voice and opinion matter, you have come to the right place.
