Layout Designer

The Daily prints once a week on Wednesday, so layout designers will need to be available online from roughly 6 to 10 pm (or until you finish your assigned pages) on Monday nights. Layout designers will be assigned to specific sections of The Daily and layout print pages exclusively for that section. The managing editor of the section that you are assigned to will contact you with articles to layout a couple days before Monday night.

Required skills include high proficiency with Adobe InDesign.

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

Are you interested in graphic design? Did you love working for your high school yearbook or newspaper? Do you know what Adobe Creative Cloud is? Do you enjoy creating pen-and-paper illustrations? If you answered yes to any one of these questions, The Daily Design may be the place for you! Design is in charge of graphics, illustrations, and page layouts for the newspaper, including inserts such as The Statement, The B-Side and Sports Monday. As a designer, you will enhance your skills with Adobe InDesign, Photoshop and Illustrator, receive feedback on your work, and receive valuable hands-on technical and design experience that you cannot get anywhere else on campus.
