Illustrator

Illustrators come into the newsroom on a given day of the week or work remotely to create one or more illustrations based on design requests from other departments. The design editor in charge of your production day will contact you in the afternoon to send you the design requests of the day. The illustrations range from small-scale, simple drawings or entire covers.

This position is closed. Please check back next semester to apply.
