In the near future, this support may extend to our other publications, OneZero (technology), Elemental (health), Forge (personal development), & Marker (business & entrepreneurship).
This role is for you if you have outstanding taste & vision, creating original, forward-thinking design for a diverse range of topics & stories. We're looking for a mobile-first, energetic, & versatile individual who can think creatively about how stories can be told visually. Originality & a creative, can-do approach toward problem-solving are a must.
