The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette in Little Rock is seeking a versatile sports designer to join our desk. Consideration will be given to applicants who know their way around a computer, preferably using inDesign. A background in journalism is important, but knowing the difference between a football and a tennis racket is mandatory.
The primary responsibility is to design pages. We pride ourselves on having a versatile staff that works as a team where it is important to work together to make deadline each night.
