See that generic stock photo at the top of this post? We like to avoid this. So we're looking to fill a position for a staff illustrator/designer.
We're looking for a graphic design and illustration junkie with an editorial focus.
About you: You have a good sense of typography. You're well read, newsy, familiar with Gawker Media and can recognize our voice.
You can read a post, conceptualize an interesting visual solution, and execute an image that will make that post better...within an hour or two.
You work fast, create multiple images a day and are willing to take on a large variety of subjects related to all of the Gawker sites.
You are clever and have a keen sense of humor, and your portfolio reflects this.
You live in or can commute to NYC.
About the job: Your job would be to make awesome images, over and over, every day, for some of the best writers on the internet.
This is a full-time position with great benefits and company perks.
Email jobs@with samples and a link to your portfolio.
