Publication Designer

Designers are at the superheroes of our company workflow – everything either photographed or written eventually flows through the fingers of a designer. Publication Designers work on a wide range of projects: crafting beautiful, fun and quirky advertisements for clients, telling deep and rich stories of people and place through magazine layouts, and envisioning digital and “analog” marketing pieces to engage the next subscriber for any of our statewide magazines. Our publication designers are skilled visual artists, copywriters, planners and project managers.
