Infographic designers come into the newsroom or work remotely on a given day of the week to design an infographic based on data that is given in a design request.

Required skills include familiarity with Adobe Illustrator and/or InDesign (familiarity with Photoshop is optional), though proficiency is highly preferred.

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